The release of big-budget Hollywood adaptation of The Man From U.N.C.L.E has been delayed by seven months, it has been announced.
The new adaptation, which stars Man Of Steel's Henry Cavill and The Social Network's Armie Hammer, has moved from its initial January 2015 slot to August 14th of that year.

The Man From U.N.C.L.E is based on the hit TV show that ran for four seasons on NBC during the '60s. It follows the adventures of Napoleon Solo and Illya Kuryakin, who are operatives for agency United Network Command for Law and Enforcement. Cavill will play Solo, with Kuryuakin played by Hammer.
Hugh Grant, Alicia Vikander and Jared Harris are also in the cast for the spy thriller.
