David McCallum, in an INTERVIEW ON THE MEDIA MIKES WEB SITE that he won’t make an appearance in The Man From U.N.C.L.E. movie now being filmed.

Here’s the key excerpt:

MS (MIKE SMITH): Final question, and I understand if you can’t answer it: next year marks the 50th Anniversary of “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.” Do you have any involvement in the upcoming “U.N.C.L.E.” film?

DM: No, right now I have nothing to do with that. It’s a whole new venture. But now that you tell me it’s the 50th Anniversary next year I’ll have to set aside a nice bottle of wine and open it. Maybe I’ll save it until the movie comes out.

As noted before, McCallum is busy doing the Los Angeles-based NCIS series. The U.N.C.L.E. movie, directed by Guy Ritchie and starring Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer, is based in the U.K. To read the entire interview, CLICK HERE.
