George Clooney pulls out of reboot 'The Man from Uncle'


George Clooney

George Clooney has left the building. The Oscar-winning hunk had been cast in Steven Soderbergh's new film adaptation of the 1960's TV spy series, The Man From U.N.C.L.E. but he has just pulled out of the film.

According to E! Online, the script features non stop stunts and big budget action sequences that Clooney feared would simply put too much strain on his body, which is still healing from injuries he suffered during the filming of a new thriller set in the Middle East.

There are even rumors Clooney plans to have another operation during the time he would have been filming The Man From U.N.C.L.E.

Soderbergh plans to make The Man From U.N.C.L.E. one of his last three films before retiring.
