It’s infrequent that Western directors use Russian characters in their films, but Guy Ritchie not only made our compatriot the main character, but also entrusted him with saving the world. And now the fans are eager to see the continuation of the adventures of the Russian spy - the official release date in Russia, the actors and the plot of the film "A.N.K.L. 2 Agents" are unknown, and the trailer is not released, but the sequel is still possible.
The Man from U.N.C.L.E. 2
Genre: action, comedy, adventure
Producer: Guy Ritchie
Release date: is unknown
Cast: Henry Cavill, Armie Hammer, Alicia Wikander and others.
The sequel will tell about the further adventures of the CIA agent and the Soviet spy, who again will have to work together to save millions of lives.
In the original film, two warring agents from different countries, America and Russia, had to unite to stop an international criminal organization that spreads nuclear weapons.
Director and shooting
The first part earned $ 109 million with a budget of 75 million - this is not the most impressive amount for the projects of the famous Warner Bros. movie studio. But, for the most part, the film received positive reviews from viewers and critics, so the continuation is quite expected.
According to official information from one of the actors, Armie Hammer, it is known that producer Lionel Wigram has been thinking about a continuation scenario since 2017:
"I called Lionel, asked how he was doing, and said that I really want to play in the sequel. He replied:" Do you know what? Fuck it all! I’ll write a sequel script. "I first spoke about it publicly, so the second part is possible. But I will by no means put pressure on you, Lionel!"
So far, Guy Ritchie, the director of the first part, has not confirmed that work on the sequel is underway. Latest news on the second part of the film "A.N.K.L. Agents" do not disclose details of production.
Actors and roles
The same actors can star in the sequel as in the first part:
- Henry Cavill as Napoleon Solo (War of the Gods: Immortals, Man of Steel, Tudors, Mission Impossible: Consequences, The Witcher);
- Armie Hammer as Ilya Kuryakin (“Gossip Girl”, “Under the Cover of Night”, “Last Portrait”, “Call Me by Your Name”, “By Sex”);
- Alicia Vikander as Gaby Teller ("Anna Karenina", "Young Blood", "From the Car", "Jason Bourne", "Girl from Denmark", "Tomb Raider: Lara Croft").
Did you know that:
- The original film was shot on the series of the same name, which was broadcast on television in 1964-1968, so perhaps the plot of the continuation will be based on this series.
- Armie Hammer said that the first meeting with Henry Cavill made a huge impression on him: "His appearance, muscles and everything else greatly struck me."
- Actors acting as the main characters, Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer, often performed the tricks in the film themselves. Hammer’s understudy even joked that he "is unlikely to have a chance to perform any trick, because the actor does everything on his own."
At the moment, there is no exact information about when the release date for the film "A.N.K.L. 2 Agents" will be set in Russia, whose actors are unknown, and the trailer has not yet been released. Loyal fans of Guy Ritchie's work still hope that the sequel will receive a green light, but the chances of a sequel are not so great.
