Man from UNCLE production in difficulties

UNCLE.jpgA good while ago we were treated to the exciting possibility of a movie based on the crackingly good fun Man from UNCLE, well now there may be a few problems in its development.

Through IGN Filmforce the story from Fox News tells us that the movie is progressing but possibly with difficulties:

…there’s legal trouble brewing for “Man from U.N.C.L.E.,” as the owners of the TV series rights are at odds with Warner Brothers over what kind of movie this should be √¢‚Ǩ‚Äù like “Mission: Impossible,” i.e. nothing like the TV series, or a blow-up of the original.

Replicate what the series was with new characters, or just ignore it and write something underneath the title. Well the choice will be made for them if they do start fighting with the owners. They’ll just refuse and then the movie will be stuck with barely no connection to the original. Oh I hope this doesn’t happen.

On a lighter note, the story has it that Vaughn thought he was related to the actor who played the great Napoleon Solo, Robert Vaughn.

Matthew grew up thinking Robert was his father. But a few years ago, he discovered this was a lie and that his biological dad was a minor diplomat.

Vaughn changed his legal name to Drummond after the real father. He and the elder Vaughn have been on the outs since then.

Hollywood will do anything to sell a movie in production!
