Brad Pitt nabs The Night Manager

Paramount and Brad Pitt’s Plan B production company have grabbed the rights to John Le Carre’s spy thriller The Night Manager.

The story finds the titular hotel employee recruited by intelligence types to help take down a dangerous international arms dealer.

So, not that different from the average night at your local Travelodge, then.

Former spy Robert Edwards has been hired to adapt the book following his work writing and directing 2006’s satirical Land Of The Blind.

And Le Carre fans will be following this one closely – it’s one of his best-loved books.
