JARED Harris has joined Guy Ritchie’s Man From U.N.C.L.E..

The former Mad Men star has previously worked with the director on Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, when he memorably played Moriarty alongside Robert Downey Jr.

Warner Bros. has, however, announced that the big screen adaptation of the classic ’60s spy TV series will begin production on September 9 on location in England, as well as in Rome and Naples.

The film follows special agents Napoleon Solo (Henry Cavill) and Illya Kuryakin (Armie Hammer), who work for the United Network Command for Law and Enforcement (U.N.C.L.E.).

It also stars Alicia Vikander as the female lead as well as Hugh Grant in a supporting role.

Harris can currently be seen on cinema screens in The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones and also has a role in the upcoming historical epic Pompeii.
