There has been a considerable amount of interest in Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy ever since Gary Oldman, Colin Firth, Tom Hardy, Mark Strong and other equally talented actors joined the film last year.
Tomas Alfredson, the Swedish director behind Let the Right One, is directing a script by Peter Morgan (The Queen, Frost/Nixon), and today interest reached a new high with the release of the first trailer.
Based on John Le Carre‘s Cold War novel, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy follows a retired MI6 agent (Oldman) who is called back to ferret out a Soviet mole hiding among the highest ranks of the MI6. The cast also includes Benedict Cumberbatch, Ciaran Hinds, Svetlana Khodchenko, Toby Jones, John Hurt, Stephen Graham and Kathy Burke. Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy will be released September 16 in the U.K., and an awards-friendly November 18 in the U.S.
