Looks like we won't be seeing a Man From UNCLE movie any time soon. For years people and studios have tried to make a feature film version of the 60's classic tv series the Man From UNCLE. The latest attempt looked like it might get made, Warner Brothers was backing it and the had Steven Soderbergh as director.
Early casting had George Clooney as Napolean Solo but he dropped out early and others were mentioned but no one was cast in any part. Now Steven Soderbergh has dropped out of the project.Soderbergh had planned a trilogy of UNCLE films set in the 1960's but it seems the casting troubles and the low budget set by Warner's ($60 million) was too much for the Director to deal with. The March 2012 planned filming date seems unlikely and Warner's will have to re-start the whole production.
