George Clooney may team up with Steven Soderbergh for Man From U.N.C.L.E.

Right on the heels of us announcing that Steven Soderbergh may take over directing duties for the long time project MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E, we get word that George Clooney is looking to team up with Soderbergh and star in the film. Clooney has discussed taking on the role of Napolean Solo, the main character in the 1960’s television spy remake. Like we said, this is still in the negotiation phase and since these two are busy with other projects it may take awhile for them to get together and hash out the details but so far it’s looking good for another team up.
I’m looking forward to Steven Soderbergh’s next project CONTAGION which will star Matt Damon, Kate Winslet, Jude Law, Gwyneth Paltrow, Marion Cotillard and Laurence Fishburne. It’s an action thriller that centers on how the CDC is dealing with a deadly outbreak, and who doesn’t love a good outbreak movie?
