The books are fantastic, and the tv adaptation with Sir Alec Guinness and the wonderful Ian Richardson was well worth watching. And while I am not normally a fan of remaking things that worked first time round, I can see this working - especially if names of the calibre mentioned in the article are potentially involved.

Isn't it Patrick Marber who's doing the Bond 23 script? To be honest I always get these two mixed up - can't think why!!!

except Gary Oldman's far too young for the part and is much more suited to a character like Karla, or perhaps Haydon. Tony Hopkins, however, would be a great choice for Smiley.

... himself famously thought that he was miscast as Smiley and that the producers should have gone for Arthur Lowe instead. Le Carre's own description of Smiley bears this out. (You can look it up for yourself.)

So, no. Even though I like Gary Oldman a lot, especially when he resists the urge to ham it to the rafters, he would be completely wrong as Smiley. Now, whoever said Anthony Hopkins... well done that man (or woman.)

I think Michael Gambon or Jim Broadbent would also be very good.
