‘Snowtown Murders’ Director Justin Kurzel Will Be John Le Carre’s ‘Kind of Traitor’

A sweet couple! A Russian traitor! A defection! John Le Carre is a fairly hot writer right now. After one of his novels was adapted every few years, the rate is growing exponentially since Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy. There’s also A Most Wanted Man in the works, and now Our Kind Of Traitor.

The script comes from Drive screenwriter Hoss Amini, and according to THR, Justin Kurzel has been hired to direct.

Independent filmmakers have keyed into the fact that we as an audience are definitely into dark, interesting, complex material. Thus, it makes sense that the spymaster Le Carre is en vogue. The other trend at work here? Australians are invading. If we’re not careful, we’ll all be watching crime dramas and eating Vegemite. Nothing to complain about, really. Now what other Le Carre work should see the big screen?
