It appears as though one amazing blockbuster isn’t enough to satisfy Armie Hammer’s movie appetite these days! Armie, who got his ‘big break’ playing twins in the hit movie ‘The Social Network’, has apparently signed on to appear with Tom Cruise in the upcoming big screen adaptation of the 60s’ television show, ‘The Man From U.N.C.L.E.’ Warner Brothers, the studio behind the movie, has Guy Ritchie signed on to direct as well.
Hammer is rumoured to have signed on to play the part of Illya Kuryakin, a Russian agent who works with Cruise’s character of Napoleon Solo in the spy organization. The premise of the film is simple enough and follows the exploits of Agents Solo and Kuryakin as the carry out espionage and law enforcement missions for the United Network Command of Law and Enforcement (U.N.C.L.E.)
But if you cannot wait that long to see Armie Hammer on the big screen, you can catch him this summer as the title character, opposite Johnny Depp in ‘The Lone Ranger’ out July 3rd!
