The movie is based on the television spy spoof that ran on NBC from 1964 to 1968. It starred Robert Vaughn and David McCallum as Napoleon Solo and Illya Kuryakin, respectively -- two super-agents with the United Network Command for Law and Enforcement (U.N.C.L.E.) called upon to save the world from the evil claws of the international crime ring T.H.R.U.S.H. (Technological Hierarchy for the Removal of Undesirables and the Subjugation of Humanity).

Borenstein previously wrote and directed 2003's 'Swordswallowers and Thin Men' starring Zoe Kazan. More recently, his script for a Jimi Hendrix biopic landed on the coveted Black List last year.
