Ewan McGregor & Naomie Harris in First 'Our Kind of Traitor' Trailer
"I can't get involved." "I'm afraid you are involved." Studiocanal UK has debuted a trailer for the spy thriller Our Kind of Traitor, an adaptation of another John le Carré novel (other recent adaptations include Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and A Most Wanted Man) about spies and secrets. Ewan McGregor and Naomie Harris stars as a couple drawn into a dangerous game of international espionage, caught between Stellan Skarsgard playing a mysterious money-launder, the Russian mafia, the British government, and Damian Lewis as a ruthless MI6 agent. This looks good, not great, though it's tough to pass up that cast.
Here's the first official trailer for Susanna White's Our Kind of Traitor, from Studiocanal's YouTube:
A couple find themselves lured into a Russian oligarch's plans to defect are soon positioned between the Russian Mafia and the British Secret Service, neither of whom they can trust. Based on John le Carré's best-selling spy novel. Our Kind of Traitor is directed by English filmmaker Susanna White, of the film Nanny McPhee Returns as well as lots of UK TV work previously. The screenplay is written by Hossein Amini, of The Four Feathers, Killshot, Shanghai, Drive, Snow White and the Huntsman, 47 Ronin. The film opens in the UK this May, but doesn't have a US release date set. Stay tuned for more updates. Thoughts?
