‘Tinker, Tailor’ Grabs Mark Strong, Stays In the Cold War

By  · Published on September 17th, 2010

While the question of whether Let Me In is going to live up to Let the Right One In, the more important question is when we’ll get to see Tomas Alfredson’s new project ‐ Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy. The easy answer is: next year. The right answer is: not soon enough.

Now, the inspired cast of Gary Oldman, Colin Firth, and Tom Hardy is being added onto by Mark Strong (who will also be appearing as Sinestro in next year’s Green Lantern). It’s also been confirmed that the story will stay firmly in the Cold War era, as novelist John Le Carre intended it. Has there ever been a more highly-anticipated film with so many commas in the title? [The Playlist]
