Tom Hiddleston is a busy man. As he continues filming Kong: Skull Island on location in Australia, and with High Rise and I Saw The Light due out in the Spring, the first trailer for the TV adaptation of John Le Carre’s novel The Night Manager, which sees him play MI-6 agent Jonathan Pine, has been released.
The series will see Hiddleston tasked with bringing down a weapons dealer, played by Hugh Laurie while other cast members include Olivia Colman, Tom Hollander and Elizabeth Debicki. Author le Carre also makes a cameo appearance.
The novel was first published in 1993 and remains one of le Carre’s most accomplished works alongside The Constant Gardener which was adapted into an Oscar winning film.
The Night Manager is scheduled to air on BBC1 in February and the American network AMC in April.
