‘Great Gatsby’s’ Elizabeth Debicki Attracted to ‘Man From U.N.C.L.E.’ (EXCLUSIVE)

Debicki played Jordan Baker in Warner Bros. Adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's book

After a strong turn as Jordan Baker in Baz Luhrmann’s adaptation of “The Great Gatsby,” Elizabeth Debicki has found her next project with Warner Bros. as she is set to join “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.” starring Henry Cavill.

Pic also stars Armie Hammer and Alicia Vikander with Guy Ritchie directing.

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. Sources say she would likely play some sort of femme fatale role.

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

The role would mark her first major role following “The Great Gatsby,” which grossed more than $300 million worldwide. The role is a huge get for Debicki given that the studio sees it as a splashy role given that they had eyed actresses like Rose Byrne and Charlize Theron for the part before deciding to give Debicki a shot at the part.

Debicki can currently be seen is currently on stage at the Sydney Theater Company opposite Cate Blanchet in “The Maids.”

She is repped by CAA and Shanahan Management.
