Cruise would have co-starred with Armie Hammer, who is still on board and Alicia Vikander, who is still in talks to star, with Ritchie helming. Deadline Hollywood broke the news.

Cruise had also been setting up other projects since coming on to the film, including attaching himself to a fifth installment of the “Mission:Impossible” franchise which has since been fast-tracked, and is believed to have also played a part in his departure.

The film is an adaptation of the 1960s TV series which followed two agents of the United Network Command for Law Enforcement as they fought the evil agents of Thrush.

Ritchie will also produce along with producing partner Lionel Wigram. John Davis is also producing.

Cruise is repped by CAA.
