“Game of Thrones” star Kit Harrington joins the Mi-5 in the movie rendition of the long-time running BBC series “Spooks” — “Spooks: The Greater Good.” Keep on reading for further details.
“Spooks” started off as a BBC series way back in 2002, and it ran consistently in the UK for nine years until the network broadcast its last episode on Oct. 23, 2011. The series experienced its share of success as it was even syndicated by numerous US networks with a title “Mi-5.” The series even paved the way of prominence for the show’s forerunners Richard Armitage, Matthew MacFadyen and David Oyelowo. Now, the series’ popularity earned itself a finale movie, “Spooks: The Greater Good,” and they’ve recruited “Game of Thrones” star Kit Harrington into the spy games.
According to Screen Rant, “Spooks: The Greater Good” is showcasing original actor Peter Firth, who played as the head of the series’ Mi-5’s head of counter terrorism, Harry Pearce. In the film, he becomes liable for the escape of the dangerous terrorist named Adam Qasin (Elyes Gabel), who seem to have dropped off the face of the earth, making him almost untraceable. Harrington then plays the role of Will, the one protégé of Harry Pearce, who gets the order to investigate the missing terrorist’s case as an active evidence for an impending attack in London comes.

“Spooks: The Greater Good” packs a series of action scenes one after another with sporadic audio transmissions as transitions. Harrington then throws out a series of stunts as he leaped through windows, rode crashed cars, dodged rifles with its aims closing in on him and expressed efforts to save London. The film is directed by TV show experienced visionaire Bharat Nalluri.
“Spooks: The Greater Good” opens in UK theaters on May 8, 2015 as no announcement for its US release has not been made just yet.
