First Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy Trailer is Released!
Let the Right One In director Tomas Alfredson chose Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy as his next directing project. Based on the novel of the same name by John le Carré and adapted to the big screen by Peter Straughan and Bridget O’Connor, the movie is a British spy-thriller that is set in the Cold War era. Plot is described as “In the bleak days of the Cold War, espionage veteran George Smiley is forced from semi-retirement to uncover a Soviet agent within MI6’s echelons. (thanks IMDB)” Carré’s famous spy Smiley’s investigation involves MI6’s highest “level,” which is also called The Circus.
I am so excited to see so many talented British actors in one movie: Gary Oldman, Colin Firth, Tom Hardy, John Hurt, Mark Strong, Benedict Cumberbatch, Toby Jones and Ciaran Hinds! What a cast. Can’t wait to see Oldman as Smiley. Fun fact, the events in Istanbul described in the book was shot on location.
So far, the trailer has created a lot of buzz; expectations are high, given the actors starring in the movie. I’m sure Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy will be on every critic’s radar when the movie opens on November 18, 2011. I will make sure to see it.
