While Steven Soderbergh may have delivered a fantastic take on The Man from U.N.C.L.E., I’m extremely excited to hear that Guy Ritchie has been hired by Warner Bros. to take over as director of the flick.

I’m sure people don’t like Ritchie’s signature slow-fast-slow action sequences – I know some people hate his take on Sherlock Holmes – but an action film like U.N.C.L.E. is right in his area of expertise.

Based on the classic TV show, the film has a script by Scott Z. Burns.  Ritchie and Wigram are forming a shingle together after making the Sherlock Holmes films.

At one point George Clooney was attached to star, but now it’s anyone’s guess as Ritchie and Wigram will need to find two actors to play Napoleon Solo and Illya Kuryakin.  It appears as though Warner Bros. is committed to the movie, as the studio has done everything to keep the action moving on the movie.
