Breaking news: after a long, drawn-out casting process between Warner Bros. and Steven Soderbergh, the Academy Award-winning filmmaker has decided to opt out and will not be directing "The Man From U.N.C.L.E.," a project he and writer Scott Z. Burns have been developing since early 2010. Soderbergh was in meetings with WB brass this evening in Los Angeles and could not come to an agreement over casting and budgets and decided to part ways on the project.
