Will Steven Soderbergh Direct "The Man From U.N.C.L.E.?" 


Steven Soderbergh is in early talks to direct "The Man From U.N.C.L.E." from Warner Bros. according to The Hollywood Reporter. Scott Z. Burns, who collaborated with Soderbergh in "The Informant" and the upcoming "Contagion," is negotiating to write the script.

This has been a long, gestating project which first saw David Dobkin ("Wedding Crashers," "Fred Claus") as director and Max Borenstein as scriptwriter.

Based on an NBC show which ran from September 22, 1964 to January 15, 1968, "The Man from U.N.C.L.E. follows the adventures of two secret agents, originally played by Robert Vaughn and David McCallum. They work for a secret international law-enforcement agency called U.N.C.L.E. (the United Network Command for Law and Enforcement). "James Bond" creator, Ian Fleming, contributed to the creation of the show.
