Warner Bros. has set spy action-drama “Man From U.N.C.L.E.” for a Jan. 16 release date in the U.S.

The film, directed by Guy Ritchie, stars Henry Cavill, Armie Hammer and Alicia Vikander. It is based on the 1960s TV spy series.

Filming began in September in London and Italy in what’s described an origin story of the first pairing of the two spies — one American, one Russian.

“Man From U.N.C.L.E” is the fourth title set to open on next year’s Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend after Fox’s “Frankenstein,” Sony/Screen Gems’ “The Wedding Ringer” and Universal’s untitled Michael Mann project.

Warner has also dated caper vehicle “Focus” on Feb. 27. That film is directed by Glenn Ficarra and  John Requa and stars Will Smith and Margot Robbie as a con-artist team.
