Guy Ritchie’s 2015 reboot of The Man from U.N.C.L.E. has one actor wishing for a sequel. Armie Hammer played a KGB operative that had to work together with Henry Cavill’s CIA Agent in order to prevent the Nazis from getting ahold of nuclear weapons. In general, the movie only grossed a little over $100 million worldwide. But, it did gain a little bit of a cult following, which has Hammer expresses want for a sequel:
“Trust me, if someone was like, ‘Hey, do you want to do a sequel?’ I would be like, ‘Hell yeah, let’s go!’ … I hear it. I get people being like, ‘Are you going to do a sequel?’ The answer is, ‘I hope so! I’d love to.’ At one point, Lionel Wigram, who was the producer and also who wrote the original script, he and I talked about ideas and he told me an idea that he had for it, and I was like, ‘That sounds great! Whatever your idea [is], let’s just do it!’ I don’t know, man. Keep pushing. Hopefully one day we can do it. I’d love to do it.”
Hamer has wanted a sequel for a while – expressed in 2017 that he had previously called Lionel Wigram to write a sequel. Which, apparently the writer/producer agreed to. If a sequel will be made – who knows. It seems that a film beforehand was “stuck in limbo” for around twenty years. So, I would say, that Hollywood is probably not jumping to do a sequel any time soon. Though with their love of obscure sequels, reboots, and revivals, who knows where Hollywood wants to go with the Man from U.N.C.L.E. franchise.
