Henry Cavill In Talks to Replace Tom Cruise in The Man From U.N.C.L.E. 0

We’ve posted about Tom Cruise’s departure from The Man From U.N.C.L.E., and mentioned that Warner Bros needs to find a replacement fast in order to maintain their schedule, and that’s exactly what they did, as it’s been reported that Man of Steel star Henry Cavill is currently in talks to join the production.

It’s not been specified why Cruise dropped out of the project, with the official reason being that he wants to focus his attentions on other matters (fans speculate that this means Mission: Impossible 5, which Cruise is exec producing).

Warner Bros. seems keen on placing their trust on Cavill, even though he has yet to prove his box office pull as Man of Steel has not been released yet. However, should Man of Steel make a killing at the box office, Warner Bros.’ decision may prove to be a wise one and they may end up with a better movie than one with Cruise at the helm.
