'Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy' sequel moving forward

By
Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy producer Eric Fellner has confirmed that a follow-up to the movie is still in the works.

The team behind the 2011 hit are planning to adapt John le Carre's novel Smiley's People as a sequel to the film, but there has not been a status update on the project for almost a year.

"We are working on another one. [Producer] Tim Bevan is putting it together as we speak with [screenwriter] Peter Straughan and [director] Tomas Alfredson, so yes it's in development," Fellner told Collider.

"Tinker did unbelievably well and it didn't cost hardly anything… But things take time. Tim is passionate about making sure we do another one."

Le Carre wrote eight books featuring the George Smiley character, who was played by Gary Oldman in Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. Smiley's People is the third entry in the series.

The storyline sees MI6 agent Smiley called out of retirement to investigate the death of one of his old colleagues, a mission that leads to his final confrontation with his nemesis, Soviet spy-master Karla.
