John LeCarre has a pretty unbelievable track record with film and TV adaptations of his novels, from the excellent A Most Wanted Man to the even more excellent Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy to older gems like The Constant Gardener and all the Alec Guinness mini-series productions on the BBC back in the day.
Now, AMC and BBC One are collaborating to adapt The Night Manager, starring Tom Hiddleston and Hugh Laurie. Check out the trailer above, which introduces us to the story of a British soldier (Hiddleston) attempting to infiltrate a circle of businessmen led by Richard Onslow Roper (Laurie). It looks amazing, and we can’t wait for the first installment, premiering April 19.
