Gary Oldman may reprise his role from Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.

The actor revealed that there were discussions about adapting John le Carré's follow-up novel Smiley's People.

Oldman would return to his part as George Smiley in the movie.

"I think they're whispering now that they might do Smiley's People, not so much as a sequel, because there's a book in the middle actually, but we've set up the world and we'll revisit," he told ComingSoon.net.

The project would see him playing a Smiley even older than the character was in Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.

The film was directed by Tomas Alfredson and co-starred Colin Firth.

Oldman has recently been connected to the role of Merlin in Warner Bros' Arthur & Lancelot.

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy was released in the UK in September. It will open in the US on December 9.
