Paramount Pictures has acquired film rights to John Le Carre’s (“The Constant Gardener”) espionage thriller The Night Manager. Brad Pitt’s Plan B is producing, says Variety.
The story centers on the night manager of a European hotel who is recruited by intelligence agents to infiltrate the network of a dangerous international arms dealer.
Robert Edwards, who wrote and directed the 2006 political satire Land of the Blind, has been hired to adapt. He is a former Nicholls fellow and was an intelligence officer during the Gulf War.
