Alicia Vikander, who recently starred in Joe Wright's Anna Karenina, has taken the female lead in Guy Ritchie's The Man from U.N.C.L.E.. The Hollywood Reporter brings word that she'll star opposite Tom Cruise and Armie Hammer as a British agent, created specifically for the film.
The film is based on the original NBC television series that starred Robert Vaughn as Napoleon Solo and David McCallum as Illya Kuryakin. They were agents of United Network Command for Law Enforcement (U.N.C.L.E.) who fight the forces of Technological Hierarchy for the Removal of Undesirables and the Subjugation of Humanity (T.H.R.U.S.H.).
Vikander can soon be seen in Warner Bros. Pictures' Seventh Son, hitting theaters October 18.
