MNG: "Armie Hammer Reveals How He Convinced Writers To Write The Man From U.N.C.L.E Sequel"
The Man from U.N.C.L.E might not have been a really big hit but it has its fair share of fans. The spy-action comedy featured Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer as American and Russian spies respectively.
TV3 reported that fans cheered as soon as news of a sequel being written surfaced online. But there is actually a story as to how this sequel came to be. The Man from U.N.C.L.E star Hammer revealed that it was because of his accidental revelation that the writers started work on the sequel’s script. It all began when Hammer was at a press conference for another movie. After he accidentally revealed that there would be a sequel to the movie at a press conference, he hit an email to director Guy Ritchie and co-writer Lionel Wigram. In the email, he mentioned about his goof up and asked till when can they get a script ready. As expected, the two were surprised at what Hammer had revealed. But when the news of the sequel started spreading quickly and fans got excited with each passing day, Wigram finally responded to Hammer. According to the actor, the co-writer mentioned that he would have a script ready by the end of the year.
The studio had actually scrapped all hopes of making a sequel to it because of a disappointing performance at the box office.It was further noted that the movie received mixed reviews from critics and grossed $109.8 million against a budget of $85 million. Despite the not so good performance, if a script is being written, the studio might be willing to take a chance by making a sequel.
