George Clooney may have pulled out of Steven Soderbergh's Man from U.N.C.L.E movie citing old age, and now 3 big names are being linked with the film.

According to The Wrap the ridiculously talented pairing of Ryan Gosling and Joseph Gordon-Levitt are being linked with the role of Ilya Kuryakin, while True Blood regular Alexander Skarsgard is also apparently up for the part. Clooney was attached to the part of American agent Napoleon Solo, but pulled out because of the physicality the part required. Soderbergh did a lot of practical stunt work on his new, partly Irish shot action film, Haywire, and wanted to continue to do so with a bigger budget.

Soderbergh's new film, Contagion, is doing extremely well at the American box-office, and opens here on October 21st.
