While filming has yet to commence on "The Man from U.N.C.L.E.," his feature film adaptation of the beloved spy series starring Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer, Warner Bros and director Guy Ritchie have already lined up their next project: "Empire Rising," a historical romance set around the construction of the Empire State Building. Author Thomas Kelly, who wrote the 2006 novel on which the film is based, will also provide the screenplay for the film. Something tells us that executives are comparing this to "Titanic" more than "Pearl Harbor," when it comes to epically staged historical love triangles. Sorry, Affleck.
