Guy Ritchie backs David Beckham as actor

The film is directed by Guy Ritchie.


The two actors star as enemy spies who join forces to defeat a mutual threat in The Man From U.N.C.L.E.

Beckham, 40, also has a role in Knights of the Round Table: King Arthur, which Ritchie directs, despite the sportsman previously saying he is “too stiff” for the big screen.

“[They] have produced a wonderful, exciting movie that in no way encroaches into what we did back in the ’60s and at the same time, uses a lot of elements that Norman Felton and Sam Rolfe created within the old ‘Man from U.N.C.L.E.,'” McCallum said.

Henry Cavill’s workout is brutal; there’s no other way to put it. When we discover what he goes through to transform his body, we realize he’s not just a pretty face, but an extremely dedicated man who knows how to get things done. “He does enjoy it (acting)”.

Meanwhile, the 46-year-old director and model wife Jacqui made their first red carpet appearance as Mr and Mrs Ritchie at Somerset House in London since they married in a three-day wedding extravaganza at their Wiltshire home on July 30.

The Man from U.N.C.L.E. is set for release on August 14th, with a cast that includes Armie Hammer (The Lone Ranger), Henry Cavill (Man of Steel), Hugh Grant (About a Boy), Elizabeth Debicki (The Great Gatsby), Alicia Vikander (A Royal Affair), Jared Harris (Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows), Luca Calvani (When In Rome) and Simona Caparrini (To Rome with Love).

“It’s not necessarily about putting your own stamp on it, it’s about doing a job and it’s a new beginning so I haven’t got enough to compare it to”.


It was in between films when he had to slim down for U.N.C.L.E. that Cavill showed his frustration during a fitting session.
