RALPH FIENNES, COLIN FIRTH, GARY OLDMAN AND MICHAEL FASSBENDER JOIN "TINKER, TAILOR, SOLDIER, SPY"

Now this is truly a stunning cast: director Tomas Alfredson ("Let the Right One In") has signed Ralph Fiennes, Colin Firth, Gary Oldman and Michael Fassbender for his new movie "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy". The film will be an espionage thriller based on the 1974 best seller penned by John le Carré. The story takes place during the aftermath of the Cold War and revolves around a spy hunter working within the highest echelons of the British Secret Intelligence Service. Back in the 1970s' BBC had a TV series starring Alec Guinness based on the same novel. "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy" is scheduled to premiere in 2012.

  9. I used to like John Le Carre stuff. And with the current Russian spy stuff in the news here in the U.S. maybe the issue will be topical again.

    I knew you'd like Oldman and Firth :)

    @Michele
    Amazing, yes?

    @Kristin
    thanks, Kristin, I was changing the design last two days, but I think this one is the keeper :) because it accentuates the middle bar while also giving place for two sidebars. I've also modernized the topic banner as well :) And I see I started a trend - with you and Falen doing the redesign as well :))

    @Arlee
    Agreed, Arlee, these spies in the news stories will bring up the trend of spies on film as well. There is already a bunch of spy and secret agent TV shows being prepared for the Autumn.
