Armie Hammer Is Excited To Meet Henry Cavill For ‘The Man From U.N.C.L.E.’

Armie Hammer and Henry Cavill

Armie Hammer and Henry Cavill are two of the hottest actors at the moment and they will be starring together in The Man From U.N.C.L.E..

The hunky pair has never met, but in a recent interview Armie Hammer, whose film The Lone Ranger is scheduled to open next week, said he is excited to meet Henry.

The movie will be directed by Guy Ritchie and is a remake of a television series with the same name which starred Robert Vaughn and David McCallum as evil-fighting agents.

Armie plays David’s character, Illya Kuryakin, a Russian spy while Henry landed Robert’s role, Napoleon Solo, after Tom Cruise had to step down due to a conflict in his schedule.

“I would have loved to work with Tom, but at the same time, I’m also excited to do it with Henry, because it adds a different twist to the movie.” Armie Hammer said in the interview.

At the time of the interview, Armie had not met Henry and stated that he was very excited to do so and about what Cavill would bring to the movie after the success of Man of Steel.

“I’m excited about meeting both of them,” said Hammer. “Hopefully, I’ll get to meet David while making the movie. We start shooting in August.”

Armie talks about how he is getting ready to play the Russian agent:

“I’m also very excited about playing a Russian,” he adds. “I’m in the middle of my research phase now. I’m studying the political climate during the Cold War between the United States and the Soviet Union. It was a fascinating time globally. It’s such a great script (by Scott Z. Burns), and it’s so funny! Guy Ritchie has such a great take on it.” he finished.

Henry Cavill has been in a whirlwind promotion tour for Man of Steel in which he plays the title role of Superman, so it seems he doesn’t get much of a break.

    I am sort of excited to see the U.N.C.L.E. film. My problem is that Armie said it's a funny script? I hope not too funny. I really think that's what ruined the Lone Ranger film. Too much comedy and not enough serious story. I remember the original Man form UNCLE and I don't remember it being slap stick at all. Please don't keep picking films that are silly. Do something serious. What happened to 2:22 and By Virtue Fall? They sound interesting..
