Steven Soderbergh to cry “U.N.C.L.E.” for Warner


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Warner’s “Man from U.N.C.L.E.” might sound a little like Danny Ocean, or Matt Damon’s whistleblowing “Informant.”

That’s because Steven Soderbergh, who directed the “Ocean’s” films and Damon’s comedy, is in talks to helm the studio’s long-gestating feature-length take on the classic 1960s television show. THR had the report.

Airing during the height of the Cold War, “U.N.C.L.E.” followed American and Russian spies who worked for the United Network Command for Law and Enforcement. If each episode felt like a new James Bond adventure, that’s because the show was created by Sir Ian Fleming, 007’s creator.

According to the story, Soderbergh would collaborate with screenwriter Scott Z. Burns, who wrote both “The Informant” and the Soderbergh’s upcoming thriller “Contagion.”
