Joesph Gordon-Levitt, Ryan Gosling & Alexander Skarsgard Wanted For The Man From UNCLE

Steven Soderbergh's big screen adaption of the 60's spy show The Man From U.N.C.L.E. is moving closer to production at Warner Bros. The only issue is that George Clooney who was attached dropped out recently and the studio is without a lead. TheWrap names actors like Joesph Gordon-Levitt (Inception, Dark Knight Rises) and Ryan Gosling (Drive, Gangster Squard, Logan's Run) being mentioned on a possible studio wishlist, along with Alexander Skarsgard (True Blood, Generation Kill). The hope is that the movie will become something similar to Lethal Weapon, becoming a solid buddy action comedy. I think both Ryan and Joesph are prime for a leap like this since both actors are solid in comedies and action focused films. Here's hoping the studio is able to wrangle their caliber to the project with Soderbergh's involvement alone.
