Production Update: The Man From U.N.C.L.E. Filming In The UK

UPDATE 7/5: It looks like a possible filming location for The Man from U.N.C.L.E. outside of the UK has been revealed. Publicist Elisa Panetto shared this tweet that gives the details:

@Miss_Twin_Peaks: Henry Cavill ed Armie Hammer gireranno il prossimo mese a #Roma "The Man from U.N.C.L.E." di Guy Ritchie! #cinema #film

Elisa tells us Ciak magazine is reporting the news. Basically, they're headed to Rome! she says it will happen sometime next month, but Henry has said filming will begin in September. Of course nothing is confirmed by Warner Bros., but how cool would THAT be?.. stay tuned!

Get ready UK, Henry is headed home!

KFTV today confirmed that The Man from U.N.C.L.E. will shoot outside of London:

Shooting will take place at Warner Bros. Leavesden, the American giant’s UK base. The big budget movie is one of many Hollywood projects heading for the UK over the coming months.

If the name sounds familiar, that's because that's where the Harry Potter series were filmed. The studio now even offers a popular tour of the facility that has a rich history. Read more.  

We are so excited to bring you news on this project that Henry recently spoke about while promoting Man of Steel in Sydney. He shares what he likes about the script, and what we can expect from his character Napoleon Solo (at about 3:48). Watch at The Age or below.

  1. Really looking forward to this movie and also to the fact that I assume Henry will get to keep his own accent....would be logical.

    1. We are SO excited about this film. Huge fans of Guy Ritchie's gritty style and what he does with his characters and scenes. But actually, Henry will play an American again. He nailed the accent beautifully in Man of Steel, so we're not worried. Good things to come!
