After all the casting problems with the big-screen version of the 1960s TV spy series "The Man From U.N.C.L.E.,” the beleaguered production has suffered another setback.
Director Steven Soderbergh has decided to walk away from the project, reports Indiewire.com.
The director has been developing the film adaptation with writer Scott Z. Burns since early 2010. But after meetings with Warner Bros. this week, Soderbergh decided he’d had enough and chose to abandon the film.
The director and the studio could not agree on casting and budget, the story reports.
