Bradley Cooper drops out of U.N.C.L.E. movie

Bradley Cooper, whose talent agency had strongly pitched the actor’s services, won’t play Napoleon Solo in Steven Soderbergh’s movie version of The Man From U.N.C.L.E., the entertainment Web site The Wrap says.

You can read the story BY CLICKING HERE. It’s not very long, though. Here’s a key excerpt:

The “Hangover” actor who had been in talks to play the crime fighter Napoleon Solo in Warner Bros’. big-screen version of “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.” will not play the role, TheWrap has learned.

Steven Soderbergh is directing the movie, which is based on the 1960s television show. Cooper was in talks to play the role that Robert Vaughn made famous.

It’s hard to tell if this is a body blow to the U.N.C.L.E. movie project or if Warner Bros. and/or Soderbergh have a plan B (or C or D or E).
