    Park Chan-wook To Direct The Little Drummer Girl

    From City On Fire:

    "Visionary director Park Chan-wook (Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance, The Handmaiden) will be directing an entire six-episode AMC/BBC mini-series based on John le Carre’s spy novel The Little Drummer Girl. According to DM, Florence Pugh (The Commuter), the fast-rising young British actress, has landed the starring role.

    Here’s what you can expect from the series’ plot, based on the book synopsis for The Little Drummer Girl (via Amazon):

    On holiday in Mykonos, Charlie wants only sunny days and a brief escape from England’s bourgeois dreariness. Then a handsome stranger lures the aspiring actress away from her pals—but his intentions are far from romantic. Joseph is an Israeli intelligence officer, and Charlie has been wooed to flush out the leader of a Palestinian terrorist group responsible for a string of deadly bombings. Still uncertain of her own allegiances, she debuts in the role of a lifetime as a double agent in the “theatre of the real.”"
    Rock! Shock! Pop!

    Pretty good first episode. Not as visually arresting as his previous stuff (to be expected on a TV production), although it has its moments. I find the lead character slightly annoying and Michael Shannon treads a fine line as usual.
    I'm bitter, I'm twisted, James Joyce is fucking my sister.
