Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy was written in 1974 by John le Carre and was brought to life by the BBC where Sir Alec Guiness played George Smiley, a middle-aged, taciturn, perspicacious Intelligence Export in forced retirement. He is recalled to hunt down a Soviet mole in the “Circus”, the highest echelon of the Secret Intelligence Service.

The movie will star Ralph Fiennes, Colin Firth, Gary Oldman and Michael Fassbender.
