A ‘Spooks’ film adaptation hits the silver screen this week

The popular British TV spy series ‘Spooks’ about the agents of Britain’s MI5 hits the silver screens this week in a film adaptation “Spooks: The Greater Good”.

The popular British TV spy series ‘Spooks’ about the agents of Britain’s MI5 hits the silver screens this week in a film adaptation “Spooks: The Greater Good”.

Peter Firth from the original drama cast and a new face, Kit Harington, from the “Game of Thrones” are starring in the film.

Harington said that the film has all the spy spirit as the original BBC series, which run from 2002 to 2011 and succeded in winning numerous awards and a huge number of fans. Also he added that it seemed like “Spooks” always wanted to be a film, because it would made possible to make much more realistic effects, to have powerful explosion and bigger action scenes.download

During a promotional interview Kit Harington said the only similarity between original “Spooks” and adaptation is that it’s still a gritty, spy thriller based in London and still in a very real world. But the film has far much more extended possibilities, it’s bigger on scope and of course they got to do a lot of things, which couldn’t be completed in the TV series.video-undefined-2529578700000578-900_638x364

So the main idea of the plot is that Sir Harry Pearce, Firth’s character in the film, tries to find a betrayer of MI5, who is inside the organisation and could be detached to escape of a convicted militant from custody in London.

Will Holloway, played by Harington, needs help, so Pearce goes underground to help Holloway, whom he withdrew from the service some time ago to find out who is a betrayer of the agency.

On Friday “Spooks: The Greater Good” hits UK cinemas.
