Paramount, Brad Pitt spy ‘Night’ shift

Duo pair for Le Carre film 'Manager'

Paramount Pictures has acquired bigscreen rights to John Le Carre’s espionage thriller “The Night Manager.”

Brad Pitt’s Plan B is producing.

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 tapped to adapt. He is a former Nicholls fellow and was an intelligence officer during the Gulf War.

British author Le Carre, who penned “The Spy Who Came in From the Cold,” has seen a number of his espionage novels turned into film and TV projects including 2005’s “The Constant Gardener.” “Night Manager,” first published in 1993, is one of Le Carre’s longer and more critically lauded works.

Par-based Plan B has three films in the can: “The Private Lives of Pippa Lee,” “The Tree of Life” and “The Time Traveler’s Wife.”
