His next film, the long-gestating spy picture "The Man From U.N.C.L.E," having recently been pushed back to next August, "Sherlock Holmes" helmer Guy Ritchie is already gearing up for his next project. The director's long been developing a new take on the legend of King Arthur, Camelot and the Knights of the Round Table. The script is penned by "Awake" writer and "Edge Of Tomorrow" producer Joby Harold, and Ritchie landed his first cast member a few weeks back in the shape of the ever-awesome Idris Elba.

2016 Release Dates: Jane's Got A Gun & More
Three major release dates were mentioned in the last 24 hours (minus the “Divergent” finale "Allegiant" being broken into two films of course). One has an unhappy ending (so far anyhow) and two are eyeing the horizon. Let’s start with the bad news: Natalie Portman’s troubled western “Jane Got a Gun” has been un-dated by Relativity Media. Originally scheduled for August 29th of this year, Relativity has pulled the film off the calendar and have not set a new date for it.

Guy Ritchie
With "The Man From U.N.C.L.E." on the way for Warner Bros., and two highly successful "Sherlock Holmes" movies under his belt, it looks like the studio is eager to keep Guy Ritchie under their roof, and now it seems they've got a massive new franchise idea with his name all over it.

Jared Harris
Jared Harris is one of those actors who, no matter the size or quality of the role, we still get excited about seeing onscreen (case in point: the otherwise abysmal "The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones"). Harris, the son of the legendary Richard Harris, makes any movie infinitely more memorable by his mere presence, adding some much-needed color to even the dreariest of studio affairs. Thankfully, a couple of said studio affairs are getting significantly less dreary thanks to Harris: the actor has recently signed on to costar in both Guy Ritchie's big budget "Man from U.N.C.L.E." and the "Poltergeist" remake for "Monster House"-director Gil Kenan.

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.

Confident much, Warner Bros.? Tom Cruise may have abruptly exited "The Man From U.N.C.LE.," the studio's spy action thriller which Guy Ritchie will direct, but acting quickly, the studio has already found a would-be replacement. And while he's far from a household name yet, the actor, British thespian Henry Cavill is set to play Superman in WB's "Man Of Steel" this summer, and clearly the studio is feeling good about the film's box-office chances and therefore by proxy, launching the actor near the A-list.

This is probably not how Warner Bros. wanted to head into the Memorial Day weekend. With the studio seemingly to finally get their long developing "The Man From U.N.C.L.E." movie going, with Guy Ritchie attached to direct and Armie Hammer and Alicia Vikander coming in supporting roles, they've just lost their leading man.

Alicia Vikander
Weren’t we just saying the pretty and talented Swedish actress Alicia Vikander was on the rise and would soon be leaving the period-piece ghetto? Frankly, we’ve had our eye on the actress for a while. We called her one of the actresses to watch in early 2012 and she’s fulfilled her promise with excellent turns in “A Royal Affair” and “Anna Karenina.” She can act and it hasn't gone unnoticed. She was up for the lead role in “Cinderella,” and while she didn’t land the part, she’s scored another plum role, the lead role in Warner Bros.' “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.”

Armie Hammer
It's incredible to think of the ups and down actor Armie Hammer has had. His career was launched in 2010 as the Winklevi twins in David Fincher's "The Social Network," a small but crucial role that earned him just the right amount of attention. But about two years before that Hammer must have assumed he had scored his first real break -- playing Bruce Wayne and Batman in George Miller's "Justice League" film that came close to shooting in 2008, down under, but Warner Bros. eventually pulled the plug.

It's been over a year now since "Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows," and while director Guy Ritchie has been linked to a few different projects -- including "Treasure Island" and "The Man From U.N.C.L.E." -- he's been filling his time with commercial work. Last fall he dropped a "Call Of Duty: Black Ops II" spot with Robert Downey Jr. and now he's teamed with another superstar for yet another advert.
