The IMDB.COM ENTRY for The Man From U.N.C.L.E. has been changed again. The name of Jeffrey Hatcher, a playwright with television, video and movie credits, has been removed from the list of writers.

IMDB has gone back to the information from the official Sept. 3 Warner Bros. press release, which never mentioned Hatcher. The press release said the movie’s screenplay is by director Guy Ritchie and his producing partner Lionel Wigram.

It’s hard to say how significant this is. IMDB.com relies on input from members and it’s not certain who originally added Hatcher’s name. The final screenplay credit will be subject to Writer’s Guild rules.

UPDATE TO THE UPDATE: @laneyboggs2001 on Twitter advises the cast list has also been expanded to include Ben Wright, stunt double of actor Armie Hammer, as “The Unit.” Hammer played Illya Kuryakin in the film while Henry Cavill had the Napoleon Solo part.
