Guy Ritchie has cast Jared Harris (Lane Pryce on AMC’s Mad Men) in his upcoming The Man From U.N.C.L.E adaptation, in an unspecified role. He'll star alongside Heney Cavill, Armie Hammer, Alicia Vikander and Hugh Grant. The movie is set to begin filming Sept. 9, shooting in England, with location filming in Rome and Naples. Here's our first official synopsis courtesy of Warner Bros.
“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.”
