The TV show starring Robert Vaughn and David McCallum will follow the footsteps of other big screen remakes like 'The A-Team'.
"The Man From U.N.C.L.E." is the latest retro TV series to be given a modern movie makeover - film bosses are set to revive the cult spy show for a big screen outing. The show, starring Robert Vaughn and David McCallum as secret agents, enjoyed a successful run between 1964 and 1968.
The series was so popular it spawned a series of spin-off movies, which saw several episodes extended and shown in movie theaters as full-length features. Vaughn and McCallum returned to the roles in 1983 for a TV movie, titled "The Return of the Man From U.N.C.L.E."
And now executives at film studio Warner Bros have announced they are moving forward with plans for a new movie, based on the hit 1960s show, with the appointment of "Wedding Crashers" director David Dobkin and scriptwriter Max Borenstein, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
It is believed the picture will feature a new cast, and will follow in the footsteps of other big screen remakes such as "Miami Vice" and "The A-Team".
