Bradley Cooper Drops Out Of 'The Man From U.N.C.L.E.'
Director Steven Soderbergh is back on the hunt for The Man From U.N.C.L.E. after Bradley Cooper quit talks to become his leading man in the movie.
George Clooney was initially touted to portray Robert Vaughn's iconic spy character Napoleon Solo in the movie adaptation of the cult 1960s TV series, and when he dropped out, Cooper was slated to take his place.
Nevertheless, The Hangover star has now walked away from the project too, leaving Soderbergh to search for a new leading man, according to TheWrap.com.
Warrior star Joel Edgerton will reportedly play Solo's sidekick Illya Kuryakin in the new film. That role was originally played on TV by David McCallum.
The movie had been scheduled to be released next year.
