Tag: Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy
Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy opened up to rave reviews and the number one spot at the UK box office last weekend, and The Guardian now report that we're likely to see Gary Oldman's George Smiley on the big screen in what may be an entire series of films.
Based on the classic novel of the same name, the international thriller is set at the height of the Cold War years of the mid-20th Century. George Smiley, a disgraced British spy, is rehired in secret by his government - which fears that the British Secret Intelligence Service, a.k.a. MI-6, has been compromised by a double agent working for the Soviets.
The most disappointing aspect of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy is the ensemble cast. What a weak assortment of no name British actors. Like Gary Oldman, John Hurt, Tom Hardy, and Collin Firth. Who the hell are those guys?
