Armie Hammer confirms Man From UNCLE sequel has a writer in place…

April 17th, 2017 by Marc Comments

The recent The Man From UNCLE movie reboot was a pretty fun affair.

The movie, from Guy Ritchie, starred Henry Cavill as Napoleon Solo and Armie Hammer as Illya Kuryakin and was funny, sexy, self aware and well worth a look and now the sequel has a writer attached.

Star Hammer has revealed that the first movie’s producer and co-screenwriter is back scripting: “I called [co-writer] Lionel Wigram, the producer of the movie, and he and Guy produced it and wrote it all together. I was like, ‘Dude, what’s the deal? I get asked about this s@#t all the time. Can you just write a sequel?'”

The actor went on: “He was like, ‘You know what? Yeah, f@#k it, I’ll do it. Sure, I’ll write a sequel.’ I was like, ‘If you write one, I’m sure we can get one made,’ so who knows? Today is the first day I’ve actually told anyone that story. I only told one other person who asked. Apparently, the sequel is being written right now. No pressure, Lionel!”

The first movie also featured Gaby (Alicia Vikander) and Alexander Waverly (Hugh Grant), so there’s plenty to look forward to if the sequel ever sees the light of day.

Did you see the first movie? Did you like it? Let us know…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
