David Dobkin has been set to direct the film, which will be based off the popular NBC series that ran from 1964 to 1968. The spy show revolved around agents Napoleon Solo and Illya Kuryakin who worked for United Network Command for Law Enforcement (U.N.C.L.E.) who tried to fend off the evil deeds perpetrated by Technological Hierarchy for the Removal of Undesirables and the Subjugation of Humanity (T.H.R.U.S.H.)
