Tom Hiddleston to star in The Night Manager's second season

Tom Hiddleston, 42, is tipped to reprise his role as luxury resort night manager Jonathan Pine, in the follow-up to the TV adaption of the John Le Carre novel.

According to Deadline, the project - which has the codename ‘Steelworks’ and has original writer Dan Farr attached to - is set to film later this year across London and South America but has not yet been given the official go-ahead from Amazon and the BBC. When it does, it is expected to get a two-series order.

Speculation about another series has circulated since the end of the first in 2016, which featured Hugh Laurie as arms dealer Richard Roper, who was kidnapped by the Syrians at its conclusion.

It also starred many other famous faces like Olivia Colman, Tom Hollander, Elizabeth Debicki and David Harewood, scooped up two Emmys and three Golden Globes and inspired a string of other Le Carre projects like 2018’s ‘The Little Drummer Girl’ with Florence Pugh from The Ink Project, which is run by the sons of the late author - who died in December 2020 aged 89 - Simon and Stephen Cornwall.

Since starring in the series seven years ago, Tom has been involved in a number of Hollywood blockbusters - such as continuing his role as Loki in the Marvel adaption of ‘Thor’ - and announced his engagement to actress Zawe Ashton, the mother of his four-month-old baby, a relationship he has made effort to keep “private

In 2017, he said: “I love what I do, and I dedicate myself with absolute commitment to making great art and great entertainment and in my mind, I don’t conflict the two. My work is in the public sphere and I have a private life. And those two things are separate.”
