This may have been mentioned before, but somebody's making a new movie based on Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy:

Quote
"Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy"
Directed by Tomas Alfredson

From the makers of "Let the Right One In," the Swedish cult vampire film, comes a tantalizing new project, an adaptation of John le Carré's famous bestseller. Director Alfredson has brought aboard many of his Swedish creative collaborators --including ace cinematographer Hoyte van Hoytema -- for this decidedly English drama about George Smiley, a retired MI6 agent trying to adjust to a life outside the secret service, who is then, of course, pulled back into the world of espionage. It's got a great cast, with Gary Oldman as Smiley, as well as Colin Firth, Tom Hardy and Ciarán Hinds. Prestige producers Working Title and Studio Canal are backing the project, which recently completed shooting in London.

As a fan of the Smiley stories and Let the Right One In, I think its safe to say this will be a very chilly-but-lovely-looking film.

One thing that bugged me was CLU's face. If they'd given all of the same 'programs' the full digital treatment it might have looked better, or at least more appropriate.
I didn't really notice it being off much, but that may have been a deliberate choice, to make the villain look wrong as well as being bad.

The comic, which takes place before the game, might help too. The TV show takes place, from what I can see, after the game. What will be interesting in the TV show is:

Where can this comic be found?
