Director Quentin Tarantino
is planning to adapt three spy thriller novels by British writer Len Deighton into a movie series, which will attract fans of the British secret agent’s on screen adventures.
Tarantino explained: One of the things I enjoy musing about doing is the trilogy of Len Deighton books, Berlin Game, Mexico Set, and London Match.
The story takes place in the Cold War and follows a spy named Bernard Sampson. What is attractive is the really great characters and the wonderful casting.
The Inglourious Basterds
filmmaker also revealed he has a list of British actors he’d love to work with, including How To Lose Friends and Alienate People
star Simon Pegg
and wants to shoot a film in the UK in the near future.
Tarantino, 46, added in an interview with The Sun
: I am a huge fan of Simon Pegg. I also think Kate Winslet is the best actresses that ever lived, so I would be honoured to work with her.
I am also a huge admirer of Anthony Hopkins. I would also love to work with Michael Caine. I can see them appearing in my movies.
