Henry Cavill, Armie Hammer, and Alicia Vikander played spies during the end of World War II trying to stop Nazi sympathizers from getting their hands on a nuclear weapon.
The movie decently satisfied critics but didn't exceed expectations, and subsequently, had an uphill battle at the box office barely just making back its $75 million budget. But since the movie set up the possibility of a franchise, leaving the trio to team up once again for another op, fans were left wondering if a sequel would ever happen.
While talking about his latest film Free Fire, Armie Hammer divulged to SlashFilm that he gets asked about a sequel all the time and that one is in the works. The film's co-writer and producer Lionel Wigram is apparently on the job to get a second film written.
I was like, ‘Dude, what’s the deal? I get asked about this **** all the time. Can you just write a sequel?’ He was like, ‘You know what?...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? Apparently, the sequel is being written right now.Officially, a movie isn't in the works just yet. Director and co-writer Guy Ritchie or other members of the cast haven't signed on. With interest from Armie Hammer to get a project rolling, hopefully, miracles can happen. Fans are clamoring for the next mission, so sorry to say Wigram, there's a lot of pressure to deliver. *fingers crossed*
UPDATED: While doing interviews for King Arthur, Ritchie talked about the possibility of doing another U.N.C.L.E. and that he'd be on board to direct.
Are you excited for a possible The Man From U.N.C.L.E sequel?
