For those who don’t want to know anything about the movie, leave now. A mild, vague spoiler awaits.

Entertainment Weekly, in its Nov. 29 issue, describes a scene from The Man From U.N.C.L.E. movie. It’s part of a broader story about the crowded U.K. filming scene, where tax breaks have fueled a boom in productions by U.S.-headquartered studios.

The story isn’t online at the publication’s website. However, the Henry Cavill News fan site HAS A POST with images of the article by writer Clark Hollis called The Joy of Sets.

In one passage, Hollis describes watching an U.N.C.L.E. movie scene being filmed. Referring to Guy Ritchie, Hollis writes:

The director decided to double down on the damp, ordering up a rain machine and having (Luca) Calvani’s character savagely attack (Henry) Cavill’s hero in the midst of what will look to audiences like a sudden Italian summer downpour. And I do mean savagely. You know you’re on a Guy Ritchie set when you hear the directorial instruction. “Let’s have him kick him in the bollocks!”

The article also has a drawing recreating the scene described, involving Cavill’s Napoleon Solo and Calvani’s Alexander. There are also comments about why the U.K. is a nice place to make a movie from Armie Hammer, who plays Illya Kuryakin. Entertainment Weekly lists movies currently in production in the U.K. It doesn’t provide a release date for the U.N.C.L.E. film.
