Hugh Grant has finally joined co-stars Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer for the shooting of The Man From U.N.CL.E.
The Notting Hill actor had not been seen, until this past Wednesday, when he joined the shoot in Rome in a three piece dark suit and shades.
The film is a remake of the 1960s television series about a CIA agent, Napoleon Solo played by Henry Cavill and a KGB spy, Illya Kiryakin portrayed by Armie Hammer.
The original series of the same starred Robert Vaughn and David McCallum.
This time around director Guy Ritchie is revamping the story, but from the looks of different photos which have surfaced in recent days, it appears the movie will be set in around the same time period as the original.
Henry Cavill was seen carrying a vintage briefcase in a photo and there were some classic cars also spotted.
Hugh Grant plays Alexander Waverly, the British head of the international intelligence agency U.N.C.L.E. and was meeting with American agent Solo and Russian agent Kuryakin.
