Le Carre Series Starring Hugh Laurie, Tom Hiddleston Lands at AMC

Night Manager AMC

AMC has splurged for dibs on an adaptation of John le Carre’s The Night Manager, to star two-time Golden Globe winner Hugh Laurie (House) and Tom Hiddleston (Thor), The Hollywood Reporter reports.

Published in 1993 as le Carre’s first post-Cold War novel, The Night Manager follows a British solider-turned-luxury hotel auditor who gets roped into an intelligence operation to take down an internationally renowned arms dealer.

AMC will co-produce the David Farr (Spooks)-penned adaptation — which the cabler is said to be envisioning as a six-to eight-episode event series — with BBC One (which will air it across the pond) and Ink Factory.

It is unclear at this time who would play whom, so wager your best guesses in Comments.
