Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy Sequel in the Works

11 December 2012 4:03 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The Focus Features spy thriller Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy didn't exactly set the box office on fire last year, taking in just over $80 million worldwide. However, since it didn't cost that much to make, producer Eric Fellner recently revealed that a sequel is in the works, with director Tomas Alfredson and writer Peter Straughan currently working on the script.

"We are working on another one. [Producer] Tim Bevan is putting it together as we speak with [screenwriter] Peter Straughan and Tomas Alfredson, so yes it's in development. It did unbelievably well and it didn't cost hardly anything. But things take time. Tim is passionate about making sure we do another one."

Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy was adapted from the John le Carr&#233 novel of the same name. The author also wrote the follow-up novel Smiley's People, which follows George Smiley coming out of retirement for another mission. No story details were given for the sequel, »

Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy Q&A with Gary Oldman

13 January 2012 9:03 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Focus Features released its critically-acclaimed spy thriller Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy in limited release December 9, and it expanded nationwide January 6. While the Oscar nominations are still a few weeks away, there is some major buzz swirling around Gary Oldman for his performance as George Smiley in Tomas Alfredson's adaptation of the John le Carr&#233 novel.

Earlier this week, Gary Oldman did a Q&A after a Hollywood screening of Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, as part of a retrospective of his work. The actor discussed the difference between adapting this tale now, after the Cold War era had come and gone, as opposed to the British mini-series adaptation, which aired in 1979.

"Oddly, I think it was a little more nostalgic then. I think the TV series, as brilliant as it is, was a sort of cozy British affair. The characters were a little more huggable, and it was a little more nostalgic. »
