The Warner Bros. project

The unique story of an agent

As of January 2017, John Davis has obtained the US distribution rights under his banner Davis Entertainment. The story is about a professional CIA agent Napoleon Solo who is tasked to save the daughter of a famous politician. He brings Illya Kuryakin with him and wants to defeat the criminals. The actor later observes that a senior officer, Sanders, is secretly defending the group of criminals.

He travels to Rome along with Illya and asks her not to share the details with anyone. Soon they escape into the water and attack the criminals at a giant ship. Meanwhile, Sanders gets an idea of what's going on and releases orders to cancel the task. The story of this sequel sounds interesting. Posters and teaser trailers have already created excitement among fans.

According to the filmmaker, most of the scenes have been shot in Greenwich, West Sussex, London, Chicago, and New York City. The public fight between the hero and criminals is shot in a famous park in London, while several action sequences have been filmed in Chatham Historic Dockyard.
