Hugh Laurie and Tom Hiddleston will play in a spy drama that will be a television adaptation of John le Carre's novel "The Night Manager". The drama, scripted by David Farr ("Hannah. The Perfect Weapon"), will be co-produced by the BBC, which will broadcast in the UK. The production is entrusted to the Ink Factory. This is reported by The Hollywood Reporter, citing its sources.
Published in 1993, Le Carre's novel tells the story of Jonathan Pyne, a British soldier who serves as the night administrator at a luxury hotel. His paths intersect with a woman named Sophie, who is associated with Richard Onslow Roper, an English businessman who specializes in the arms trade. Sophie provides Pine with compromising documents for Roper, which he passes on to his friends in British intelligence. Sophie dies, and Pine collaborates with intelligence and becomes an undercover agent whose goal is to expose Roper and avenge Sophie's death.
For Laurie, twice Golden Globe winner for her leading role in the popular medical drama Fox's House Doctor, the upcoming series will mark a return to television.
