Director Anton Corbijn, in addition to having a tough-to-spell last name, got a lot of critical acclaim for his arty 2010 thriller The American starring George Clooney. Now he appears to be taking on an even more prestigious project, A Most Wanted Man, based on the 2008 novel by John le Carré. The book is about “Chechian Muslim Issa who illegally immigrates to Hamburg, where he gets caught up in the international war on terror.”

If that sounds familiar to you, it’s loosely based on the real-life case of Murat Kurnaz, who was detained by the US government at Guantanamo Bay for several years – maybe the producers of this can score him some free tickets.

Anyway, no word on casting or anything yet, since this is still in the early stages. As big fan of The American and a bigger fan of Corbijn’s earlier Ian Curtis biopic Control, I’m excited about this news. Can you handle my excitement? Can you?? (The Hollywood Reporter)

You can see Gary Oldman and Tom Hardy in theaters this year, albeit in a movie that's not about Batmen.

You know what’s a funny word? “Tinker.” Just thought I’d throw that out there.

Moving right along, Focus Features has announced a release date for Swedish filmmaker Tomas Alfredson’s new film, Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy. The cast includes a few folks bat-swiped from The Dark Knight Rises, Gary Oldman and Tom Hardy, not to mention Colin Firth and Mark Strong. The spy drama will be released November 18, 2011.

Based on the novel by John Le Carre, Tinker, Tailor tells the story of a spy named George Smiley (Oldman), who must come out of retirement, tasked with finding a mole in British Secret Intelligence Service during the Cold War. This one’s got a lot of Oscar buzz around it, hence the November release. Also getting released that weekend are The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 and Happy Feet Two, two other serious Best Picture contenders. (Variety)
