The Man From U.N.C.L.E film that starred Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer was met with mixed reviews and a soft box office . Usually that is the death knell for a sequel but Armie Hammer told a story recently in Slashfilm about a conversation he had with co-writer and producer Lionel Wigram.
“I called Lionel Wigram, the producer of the movie, and he and Guy produced it and wrote it all together,” ‘Dude, what’s the deal? I get asked about this shit all the time. Can you just write a sequel?’ He was like, ‘You know what? Yeah, fuck it, I’ll do it. Sure, I’ll write a sequel.’ I was like, ‘If you write one, I’m sure we can get one made,’ so who knows? Today is the first day I’ve actually told anyone that story. I only told one other person who asked. Apparently, the sequel is being written right now. No pressure, Lionel!”
