Start the Robert Downey Jr. as Napoleon Solo rumors right ... now. Deadline reports that Guy Ritchie has attached himself to the Warner Bros. reboot of 'The Man From U.N.C.L.E.' following the departure of Steven Soderbergh last month. No word yet whether Ritchie will direct -- per Deadline, he and producing partner Lionel Wigram have only "come aboard" -- but considering the success he's had for the studio with the 'Sherlock Holmes' films, it seems likely. Warner Bros. had wanted a major star to lead 'The Man From U.N.C.L.E.' -- it's part of the reason why Soderbergh eventually left the project, months after George Clooney had to bow out because of injury -- and since Ritchie has a fruitful relationship with RDJ, you wouldn't be wrong to assume the 'Holmes' star will at least get called about 'U.N.C.L.E.'
