Different anon here. Let's talk about B's possible future project! Have you heard that G. Oldman will be back as Smiley yet? I think they'll start filming Smiley's People next year. I know B has already many projects waiting after one another. But I really hope that B will reprise his role as Guillam, especially if the whole team return. What do you think?

ooooh great question.

omg this film is in my top ten of all time; and i will forever mourn the fact that oldman did not win the oscar. yes yes yes please; imagine peter guillam, back as smiley’s right-hand man, occasional head of the scalphunters, sometimes head of the parisian secretariat, always brutal and the only one smiley ever really trusts…. but this time older, harder, and with a wider selection of 1960s ties.

and gary and benedict together again is very important. 


“What the hell do you think spies are? Moral philosophers measuring everything they do against the word of God or Karl Marx? They’re not. They’re just a bunch of seedy, squalid bastards like me. Little men, drunkards, queers, hen-pecked husbands, civil servants playing cowboys and Indians to brighten their rotten little lives. Do you think they sit like monks in a cell, balancing right against wrong? Yesterday I would’ve killed Mundt because I thought him evil and an enemy, but not today. Today he’s evil and my friend. London needs him. They need him so that the great moronic masses you admire so much can sleep soundly in their flea-bitten beds again. They need him for the safety of ordinary crummy people like you and me.”
