We simply cannot get enough of John le Carre. The British writer with the French name has been capturing our attentions since he conceived Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and ever since, we’ve been wanting to adapt his novels for the big screen and the small. From A Most Wanted Man to The Night Manager, we’ve stuffed ourselves with the brilliance of le Carre and now we want more.
Luckily, we are getting more with Our Brand of Traitor, which is out this Friday!
The creator of A Most Wanted Man and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy has a new adaptation of his book Our Kind of Traitor. Directed by Susanna White and written by Hossein Amini (guys, he wrote Drive,) Our Kind of Traitor revolves around an ordinary British couple who befriend a flamboyant Russian on holiday but unfortunately discover that he’s a criminal. Welp. When he asks for help, the pair are thrown into the dangerous world of espionage!
The film looks like your bog-standard spy romp with a talented cast in the centre of it. From Ewan McGregor to Damian Lewis, Naomi Harris to Stellan Skarsgaard, Our Brand of Traitor looks to be interesting enough.

Our Kind of Traitor is out Friday 13th
