William Monahan To Tell A Delicate Truth
Adapting John le Carré's thriller

25 April 2013  |  Written by Phil de Semlyen  |  Source: The Ink Factory

If you've got a book property that needs adapting, you could do an awful lot worse than hiring The Departed scribe William Monahan to do it for you. And that's exactly what The Ink Factory are in the process of doing, with the Oscar-winning screenwriter in talks to adapt John le Carré's new novel, A Delicate Truth.

A thriller with political resonance, A Delicate Truth sees a special forces mission in Gibraltar spinning tragically out of control and embroiling political idealist Toby Bell in the kind of nefarious conspiracy the writer makes so believable.

It isn't the only Carré-on The Ink Factory is involved in. The London and LA-based production house also has Anton Corbijn's A Most Wanted Man heading to the screen - another le Carré potboiler that sends Philip Seymour Hoffman into a world of money laundering and international terrorism. Away from espionage, there's also a Simon Beaufoy-penned take on Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk on its intriguing and topical-looking slate.

Of course, these are only the latest in a long and gilded line of le Carré adaptations. The novelist and former spy has already gifted Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, The Constant Gardener, The Spy Who Came In From The Cold and numerous other crackle-some thrillers to the big screen. His latest, which sits on bookshelves, real and virtual, right now, has a new trailer to give a flavour of what to expect. Watch it below.
