Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer star in The Man From U.N.C.L.E. and we have yet another new still from the film. In the new pic above, the pair is seen riding a vintage Vespa and looking for something or someone. Both share the bike and are dressed in 60s attire.
“Henry Cavill (Man of Steel) stars as Napoleon Solo opposite Armie Hammer (The Social Network) as Illya Kuryakin in director Guy Ritchie’s action adventure The Man from U.N.C.L.E., a fresh take on the hugely popular 1960s television series. Set against the backdrop of the early 1960s, at the height of the Cold War, The Man from U.N.C.L.E. centers on CIA agent Solo and KGB agent Kuryakin.”
“Forced to put aside longstanding hostilities, the two team up on a joint mission to stop a mysterious international criminal organization, which is bent on destabilizing the fragile balance of power through the proliferation of nuclear weapons and technology. The duo’s only lead is the daughter of a vanished German scientist, who is the key to infiltrating the criminal organization, and they must race against time to find him and prevent a worldwide catastrophe.”
The Guy Ritchie adaptation was filmed in 2013, on set and on location in Rome and London, where Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer were followed by fans who came to watch the outdoor shoot. This particular scene, shown in the new still, was filmed during a night shoot in Rome on October 3, 2013, according to HenryCavill.org.
Several photos taken by those attending the filming that night show Henry and Armie seemingly trying to figure out how to use the motorcycle prior to shooting. In the new The Man from U.N.C.L.E. still, the pair is seen looking worriedly down the narrow streets of Rome.
Henry Cavill recently wrapped seven months of filming for the sequel to Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, in which he will reprise his role as Superman opposite Ben Affleck as Batman. The Brit is getting ready to take on a new role as John Stratton in the movie Stratton: First Into Action based on the life experiences of author Duncan Falconer, who was a Royal Marine and served in the Special Boat Service.
In early November of last year, we found out that Henry and his brother Charlie Cavill had formed their own production company, Promethean Productions, and their first project would be Stratton: First Into Action. Henry is passionate about this topic since he has another brother, Nik, who is a Royal Marine.
