U.N.C.L.E. movie may be gaining momentum, LAT Says

A Los Angeles Times blog says momentum may be gaining for a movie based on The Man From U.N.C.L.E.

When last we heard, back in April, Warner Bros. had a writer, Max Borenstein, on board as well as a director, David Dobkin. Steven Zeitchik, writing on the LAT’s 24 Frames blog, takes it from there:

Now, “U.N.C.L.E.” is picking up more speed — of a sort. Borenstein has turned in his script (which is said to be a commercial action thriller with some comedic touches, but not the other way around) and the studio likes it and wants to move forward, according to sources. But Dobkin, it turns out, will only produce, not direct, which has led the studio to intensify its search for a director.

Now we’re on record as being skeptical of a Man From U.N.C.L.E. movie becoming reality. But if the LAT is on to something, we may have to re-evaluate.
