WATCH: Choose Your Side in the Trailer for John le Carré’s “Our Kind of Traitor”
Ewan McGregor and Naomie Harris star in the latest feature adaptation from the writer of The Constant Gardener and The Spy Who Came in from the Cold.
John le Carré is sort of like the Philip K. Dick of the spy genre: a writer whose work is seemingly inexhaustible for movie adaptations. The main difference, however, is that thankfully le Carré is still with us, and at the very least it’s safe to assume that he still maintains some sort of say as to who is doing what with his fantastic stories. The most recent adaptations of his novels (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and A Most Wanted Man) were both fantastic, so hopefully this means that we’ll keep riding this high streak on into the next one: Our Kind of Traitor.
With a screenplay adapted by Hossein Amini—who also adapted Drive—the movie stars Ewan McGregor and Naomie Harris as an unsuspecting couple roped into an intercontinental political conflict. Right now, there’s no US release date, but it’s scheduled to be released in May in the UK, so it shouldn’t be much longer after that before it’s here as well.
