Guy Ritchie in Talks to Direct ‘Man From U.N.C.L.E.’

7849678.jpgA lot of people would consider Steven Soderbergh irreplaceable. Not Warner Bros.! reports that the studio is close to hiring Guy Ritchie (Sherlock Holmes) to direct The Man From U.N.C.L.E., a film Soderbergh had been slated to helm before departing the production a month ago over reported disagreements on budget and casting. Ritchie inherits a script from longtime Soderbergh collaborator Scott Z. Burns; presumably, it will be re-written to make room for lots of frantic, coherence-shedding action sequences with ever-changing frame rates.


Guy Ritchie’s next film, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, opens in theaters next Friday, December 16, 2011. Click on the image below for more photos of Ritchie and his hot girlfriend:
