Actors Ralph Fiennes, Colin Firth, Gary Oldman and Michael Fassbender are teaming up to bring author John le Carre's 1974 espionage thriller "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy" to the big screen. The four stars have signed on to the Tomas Alfredson film, about a hunt for spies within the highest ranks of the British Secret Intelligence Service after the Cold War.
Le Carre's novel was previously turned into a U.K. TV series starring Sir Alec Guinness. The actor who is also known as Obi-Wan played George Smiley and was applauded for his portrayal in the BBC's seven-part adaptation of the story of Agent Smiley.
Production will begin in London in October, reports industry paper Daily Variety. The film, which uses the script by Peter Morgan, will be released in the U.S. sometime next year.
