Re: Guy Ritchie To Direct 'The Man From U.N.C.L.E.' Starring Tom Cruis

From the description, it sounds like they're playing up the Cold War tensions that were barely mentioned in the original show. But the mention of their lead being a missing scientist's daughter suggests that they're sticking with the original formula of having an "innocent" in every episode.

I expected that Hugh Grant would end up playing Mr. Waverly. He seems a bit young for the part, but has the right kind of slightly dotty upper-class Britishness.
