While In Early Stages, Picture Is Being Envisioned As "Back To Roots" '60s-Set Film2011 is shaping up to be a banner year for director Steven Soderbergh and therefore likely a big one for Warner Bros. too. The prolific filmmaker is planning on releasing his latest spy-based action thriller "Haywire" next spring, he's currently shooting the virus thriller "Contagion" for an already-planned October 21, 2011 release date (Matt Damon, Kate Winslet and Gwyneth Paltrow are just a few of the A-list names, but no, it won't be in 3D), and he's just announced his latest project, the big screen version of “The Man From U.N.C.L.E" for the aforementioned WB.

The big screen version of "The Man From U.N.C.L.E." is one of those projects that has been knocking around for years that has never made it in front of cameras. It has attracted a variety of talent over time including Quentin Tarantino (really), Matthew Vaughan with Daniel Craig attached, David Dobkin and as recently as this summer, Doug Liman (who ended up turning it down). We can't say we were ever really interested in the project. Until now.
