Uproxx: "Hammer updates us about the saga of the The Man From U.N.C.L.E sequel"


A few weeks ago I spoke to Guy Ritchie and mentioned the story about you and Lionel Wigram discussing a sequel to The Man from U.N.C.L.E.. He didn’t know much about that and seemed shocked that movie has had a resurgence…
Wait, when did you talk to him? How long ago was this?
Around six weeks ago…
Was this before King Arthur premiere or after the King Arthur premiere?
Before.
Okay, because he came into town for the premiere and we all had dinner: Guy, Lionel, myself, and Lynn Harris, who was one of the executives on the movie. And we all had dinner together and that’s when I told them. I was like, “So, guys.” So, yes, it is completely conceivable that he didn’t know. After you interviewed him, probably about a week after that, sat down and was like, “So here’s the deal. We’re doing this.”
He seemed very happy people were discovering it.
Yeah, people bring it up quite a bit and it just makes me really happy for Guy and it makes me really happy for Lionel and for Henry and for myself. You know, we put a lot of work into it and we really enjoyed making it, so the fact that people enjoyed watching it is a lot of fun. And if people enjoyed watching enough to sort of warrant making another one, I would be there. You know, I loved working with those guys. I loved working on that project. I’d love to do another one.
I know he brought it up in other interviews after, asking their opinions on U.N.C.L.E.
Yeah. Well, I’m glad that you reinforced that, because for all of his skills and how he can make a great movie, he probably had no idea that people really liked The Man from U.N.C.L.E. So that’s great.
