So, it's a deal! Universal has taken the domestic distribution right of Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, the most promising movie of the year, and I bet it will be worth-anticipated for the movie!
It is a movie on a former MI:6 operative agent comes out from retirement to identify the traitor within the MI:6. This movie is directed by Tomas Alferson (director of Let The Right One In!). And of course, it is formed by a pretty strong cast, Gary Oldman, Colin Firth (recent Oscar winner!), Tom Hardy, Mark Strong (One of my fav!), Toby Jones and John Hurt. Now, they got Universal, a nice and classic storyline, I can't see how this film is going to disappoint the audience!
Well, the cast is so strong that you have no worry at all on the acting, now we would like to see how Tomas Alferson is going to present this classic drama series and squeeze it into a 2 hours screenplay! And for Gary Oldman's Smiley character, previously potrayed by Alec Guinness.
"It’s proper work, and I haven’t done that for a long time. I’ve played some amazing roles and I’ve had a good run, but this is something else. And it’s like coming home. I can’t remember the last time I played an Englishman,” Oldman on playing George Smiley and involved in Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy.
Oldman's acting is as convincing as he always does, so who knows? Smiley's role might win Gary something, you know the one that just won by his co-star Colin Firth recently!
I'm really looking forward into this film. It will be released around late November or December this year, probably will be here (...in Malaysia) next year only if they consider to be released at the same time. Can't wait for that!
(PS : Ah, it might be released at the same time with Sherlock Holmes 2! Holmes or Smiley? )
