Night falls on Pitt

03.17.2009

Brad Pitt's Plan B and Paramount are teaming up to bring us THE NIGHT MANAGER, a film based on the John Le Carre novel of the same name. The 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 hired to adapt what is considered to be one of Le Carre's best books. The prolific author's dizzying tales of espionage and intrigue have produced some quality films, most notably 2005's THE CONSTANT GARDNER, which was a study in novel-to-screen adaptations done right. Keep in mind Le Carre's work is notoriously labrynthine, making it difficult to adapt, so we here at Joblo would like to wish Pitt and company the best of luck. Good luck fellas!
Extra Tidbit: Dubya is a huge fan of Le Carre's novels, despite the author's outspoken dislike for the former president. I'm just surprised the man can read.

Whaaaat? City of God is one of the best movies EVER!
But you should give Constant Gardener a viewing. If you enjoyed Tailor of Panama theres no doubt you will like it.

Oh, and about the movie.

While I love "The Russia House" (both the book and the movie) and enjoyed "The Tailor of Panama," there was no way I was going to sit through another Fernando Meirelles movie after the overblown headache that was "City of God."

I'm not familiar with the work of Robert Edwards so I cannot judge there. However, the book was quite good and though I do not see Brad Pitt in the title role, I think he is an impressive actor.

I always figured Bush would be more into Tom Clancy. Or is that Cheney. Just cuz Clancy is like the antithesis of Le Carre.

And yeah, I'm no fan of the ex-prez, but I never figured him for a complete moron, just irresponsible and plainspoken.

And I defy anyone now to say what the future will tell us about the 43rd president. Eisenhower was considered a do-nothing president in his time, and now he's celebrated as one of the better presidents of the second half of the last century.

The title made me think that this was going to be about the book "Night", that holocaust one.

HEY

Bush has shown many times that he has an intelligent mind ... just for baseball, though, none whatsoever for politics.

As for the movie ... At this point, I would watch anything with brad pitt. The dude knows how to pick his movies, and this sounds like a good one.

BUSH: worst President in history

defend him if you want - history will judge him as the worst Pres ever.

I think Hollywood needs to take on challenging material like this more often.

right and wrong

Balboa6, you're right, just because someone isn't good at speaking publicly doesn't mean they're not well-read or intelligent.

Bush showed many times, though, in many many ways, that he is neither well-read, articulate, or intelligent.

I'm holding out for THE LOST CITY OF Z, which Mr. Pitt is supposed to be producing and starring in.

You're surprised Bush can read just because he isn't overly articulate when speaking publicly all the time? One's public speaking abilities has nothing to do with intelligence.

In any case, this movie sounds okay. Nothing spectacular.
