Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer have been talking about their new movie, the Guy Ritchie-directed spy thriller, The Man From UNCLE.
Henry, who plays America CIA agent Napoleon Solo, talked about how he struggled at first with an American accent.
“I definitely struggled at the beginning because we hadn’t found the accent by the time we started shooting. When we were shooting Guy would come in and say ‘No, that sounds wrong,’ or ‘this sounds wrong’ or ‘try and say the word this way’ and because there’s no uniform structure to it, it became very difficult to perform and you become very conscious of speaking as opposed to acting and feeling. Eventually we found it about a quarter of the way through the movie because we found a way of speaking that was consistent.
The actor also joked about being approached the play Bond following Daniel Craig’s predicted exit: “It’s top secret so I can’t say anything.”
Armie also seemed keen: “Totally, I’m in. I’m not supposed to talk about it yet but I’ve had a conversation with someone.”
The movie, which GLAMOUR very much enjoyed, sets up for a sequel at the finale so we asked the boys if this was happening.
“We haven’t heard anything. We’d love to do it,” said Henry.
A new trailer has been released by the Warner Bros:
Henry Cavill (“Man of Steel”) stars as Napoleon Solo opposite Armie Hammer (“The Social Network”) as Illya Kuryakin in director Guy Ritchie’s “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.,” a fresh take on the hugely popular 1960s television series.
Set against the backdrop of the early 1960s, at the height of the Cold War, “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.” centers on CIA agent Solo and KGB agent Kuryakin. Forced to put aside longstanding hostilities, the two team up on a joint mission to stop a mysterious international criminal organization, which is bent on destabilizing the fragile balance of power through the proliferation of nuclear weapons and technology. The duo’s only lead is the daughter of a vanished German scientist, who is the key to infiltrating the criminal organization, and they must race against time to find him and prevent a worldwide catastrophe.
“The Man from U.N.C.L.E” also stars Alicia Vikander (“Anna Karenina”), Elizabeth Debicki (“The Great Gatsby”), with Jared Harris (“Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows”), and Hugh Grant as Waverly.
The screenplay was written by Guy Ritchie & Lionel Wigram, who previously collaborated on re-imagining the classic detective Sherlock Holmes in two hit films. The story is by Jeff Kleeman & David Campbell Wilson and Guy Ritchie & Lionel Wigram, based on the television series “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.”
