Naples Thanks Warner Bros. + Two New U.N.C.L.E. Locations

As The Man from U.N.C.L.E. continues filming in Naples, a local newspaper is thanking the studio and the local administration for bringing production to the area. In an open letter, Cronaca Flegrea says it hopes the film showcases the region at an international level.

This weekend the cast and crew have been hard at work at two locations including Mostra d'Oltremare pictured above. Learn more about the Overseas Exhibition at their site. It looks like an amazing place filled with gardens and historical buildings.

The second location is a breathtaking beauty. Welcome to Procida.


La Repubblica reports that filming took place there as well on Saturday. The paper says a crew of 14 people worked a full day in the Bay of Corricella, with local fishermen participating in the film with their boats. "Il Postino" and "The Talented Mr. Ripley" with Matt Damon both filmed there, attracting tourists to the area. The paper says the hope is The Man from U.N.C.L.E. does the same. The local government also secured an official presentation of the film on the island. Some of the shots we'll hopefully see in the movie include the marina, and gorgeous views overlooking the sea from ​​the Church of Saint Margaret.

The paper goes on to say that the director and the actors had lunch at "Graziella" restaurant pictured below.
The shoot was coordinated by the organizers of the Procida Film Festival.


As we continue to bring you U.N.C.L.E. filming updates, we have to say this is by far our favorite location. Procida looks like a painting. Can't wait to see it in the film.

Giulia, our thanks as always.

No Napoleon Solo Sightings, But HELLO Tunnel Chase Scene!


Look what ilmondodisuk came across on the set of U.N.C.L.E. in Pozzuoli yesterday.. Henry's chair! - marliimarl_ had told us about it, when she checked out the south London set of the film and met Henry. You can see him walking away from it, in this pic from that day. So cool to see Solo's chair up close.


Thanks to SunBurnJules, we've also gotten a close-up look at Henry's commando outfit at the Pozzuoli set, plus some of the scenes that were shot there. HMSSWeblog says that particular costume may be part of some Easter eggs being put in the film. We were the first ones to tell you about one of those items (Solo's pinky ring), but they have a lot more details about the connection to the original TV series. Check it out.


And this is a first look at Elizabeth Debicki doing some water scenes in Naples. Who she plays is still a mystery.. good girl or bad girl? either way, loving the retro outfit!

As filming winds down in the Naples area, we were hoping to catch a glimpse of the vintage chopper used in the Bond series. It was supposed to take part in today's filming, but no luck getting a pic. However thanks to FreeBacoli, we did get a bit of a peek at the chase scene we told you about a few weeks ago. It reportedly involved a criminal that while trying to flee Baia castle (below) escapes in a car, giving way to a chase that leads up a tunnel to the lighthouse in Miseno. The following pictures pretty much tell the story.  




The crew hard at work

As the film starts taking shape, we are so excited to bring you the latest details as they come in. The Man from U.N.C.L.E. looking pretty darn cool. Go Solo!

Fan Captures Henry In Action On 'The Man From U.N.C.L.E.' Set


The very awesome SunBurnJules was able to see some of the action at the Pozzuoli pier set of The Man from U.N.C.L.E. and she has plenty to share with you guys. Read what to look for when you click on the HQ version of her photos:

These are the pics I took in Pozzuoli. In the photos you can see the part of the sequence of the scene they were shooting yesterday afternoon, Henry was in the green vintage car. In the other ones Henry and Guy are going to dinner before filming the boat scene near the "molo caligoliano." After dinner they were in a hurry so Henry took just a few photos with the fans.


Thanks so much for sharing Giulia. Check out her pictures below, & don't miss the rest of the HQ pics & details from that set. More to come!

retenews24 shared this great fan pic and story about what it took for Henry to get back on land for lunch while filming The Man from U.N.C.L.E. in the middle of the Gulf of Bacoli. A chopper took him to a ship, from which Henry then took a small boat to land at the port of Baia. The paper says "all this for some great coffee" that Henry enjoyed at a local restaurant. Henry reportedly told staff he'd be back with the rest of the cast. (Thanks Angela).

Henry suits up on set!

Henry was later spotted in his special forces outfit (?). Looking good Napoleon Solo!




@SunburnJules@HenryCavillNews I have to thank my boyfriend for that shot! :) Henry looked at him as he was taking pics and he greeted him :)
