Snowtown Helmer Does le Carre’s “Traitor”

Aussie filmmaker Justin Kurzel (“The Snowtown Murders”) is set to direct an adaptation of John le Carre’s novel “Our Kind of Traitor” for The Ink Factory and Potboiler Productions says Variety.

Hossein Amini (“Drive,” “Snow White and the Huntsman”) penned the script which follows a young couple who are persuaded into helping a charismatic Russian criminal to defect. The story takes place across London, Paris, Moscow and Tangiers.

Stephen Cornwell, Simon Cornwell, Rhodri Thomas, Gail Egan and Andrea Calderwood will produce. Shooting aims to kick off this Fall.
