With no reason as of yet, George Clooney is withdrawing himself from THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E. big screen adaptation.

Steven Soderbergh is still set to direct and production is slated for February 2012. Scott Z. Burns (CONTAGION) recently finished the script for the film which is said to still be set in the 60s and will stay faithful to the original series.

What was the original series all about? "U.N.C.L.E. aired on NBC from 1964-68, during a Cold War period that saw numerous spy shows hit the airwaves. James Bond author Ian Fleming was even a creator of the show, which focused on the adventures of American and Russian members of a secret agency called the United Network Command for Law and Enforcement."

Clooney was set to play the Robert Vaughn role. I wonder who Soderbergh will look to now.

Funnily enough, I was just thinking about this project, wondering what was going on with it. Huh.

He probably doesn't have the time due to 'Mad Men', but how about Jon Hamm?
