Guy Ritchie Opens Up About the Struggle to Make 'Man From U.N.C.L.E.'

Director Guy Ritchie and associates spoke with Variety's Jenelle Riley about the process of making his new hit film, Man From U.N.C.L.E. and how he and producing and writing partner Lionel Wigram cracked a story that had come to nothing in the hands of scores of major directors and stars. Based on the Cold War-era TV series, the film stars Henry Cavill as Napoleon Solo and Armie Hammer as Illya Kuryakin. 

Ritchie expects 100% commitment when working on a project. “Guy has an expression, ‘Either you’re full time or you’re not,’ ” says Wigram, who stays with Ritchie and his family when he’s in London. “Our experience of making a film is we live it. It’s useful to be together. You can come down for breakfast in the morning and go, ‘I just had an idea in the shower.’ It’s all consuming, and it’s been wonderful for me. I have my own family in Los Angeles, and I feel very lucky to have a second family when I’m there."
