Tradecraft: Lionsgate to Release Le Carré Movie Our Kind of Traitor in America

Le Carré fans, rejoice! We finally have some release information about Our Kind of Traitor, the movie adaptation of the author's 2010 novel. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Lionsgate has acquired U.S. distribution rights, and plans to release the movie through Roadside Attractions in mid-2016. It's been a long road to the screen for Our Kind of Traitor. The film was first announced back in 2012, at which point Justin Kurzel was set to direct and Ralph Fiennes and Mads Mikkelsen to star. Kurzel instead went on to direct Michael Fassbender in Macbeth and neither Fiennes or Mikkelsen ended up starring. By 2013 Susanna White (Parade's End) was directing, and in 2014 filming finally got underway with Ewan McGregor (Alex Rider: Stormbreaker), Naomie Harris (Skyfall), Stellan Skarsgård (The Hunt for Red October) and Damian Lewis (Homeland) starring. A year passed and no release materialized, but now, at last, we have one to look forward to in 2016!
