Hugh Grant has landed a role in director Guy Ritchie's Man From U.N.C.L.E. movie adaptation.
The revamp of the cult 1960s TV spy series will star fellow Brit Henry Cavill, who replaced Tom Cruise after the Hollywood actor dropped out of the project, and The Lone Ranger's Armie Hammer. Alicia Vikander has also signed up to play the female lead.
Grant will play the head of British Naval Intelligence in the film, which is slated to begin production next month (Sep13).
