Desperate to get sucked into a heavyweight BBC drama about the seedy world of espionage and arms trading? Of course you are! Especially one starring Hugh Laurie and Tom Hiddleston...

Entertainment Weekly is reporting that the pair will appear in a series adaptation of John Le Carré’s thriller The Night Manager. The site claims that the script will be tackled by Hanna and Spooks writer David Farr.

Hiddleston will play the part of Jonathan Pine, a former British soldier turned night-shift worker at a luxury hotel, while Laurie will play a shady black marketeer called Richard Onslow Roper.

Brad Pitt had previously been linked with a big screen version of Le Carré’s 1993 novel.
