Olivia Colman and Tom Hollander sign up for new John le Carre TV adaptation The Night Manager
Broadchurch star Olivia Colman, her Rev co-star Tom Hollander and The Great Gatsby's Elizabeth Debicki have signed up star alongside Thor star Tom Hiddleston and former House mainman Hugh Laurie in a new adaptation of John le Carre's The Night Manager.
The show is a joint venture between the BBC and AMC and will be directed by Serena and Things We Lost In The Fire's Susanne Bier. It will film later this year and be screened in 2016.
The Night Manager was originally published in 1993 and follows the travails of Jonathan Pine, a British soldier who has made a new life as a luxurious hotel night auditor.
However, after Pine crosses paths with a French-Arab woman named Sophie with ties to the notorious Richard Onslow Roper, an English black marketer who specializes in weapons, everything begins to unravel for him.
Colman will next be seen alongside Tom Hardy in the film adaptation of musical London Road, while Hollander is currently recording vocal parts for Andy Serkis's new adaptation of The Jungle Book.
