They're making a tv series about the "Fractured Europe" novels, and it's by the "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy" team, but...

I liked the first novel (and especially enjoyed how it turned weird so swiftly), and the Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy movie is great, but framing the news this way is pretty funny:

EXCLUSIVE: Here’s a project that’s likely to generate plenty of buzz globally: Studiocanal is reuniting the BAFTA-winning and Oscar-nominated team behind Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy to adapt spy author Dave Hutchinson’s Fractured Europe Sequence novels into a major television series.

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy writer Peter Straughan and director Tomas Alfredson will turn the best-selling novels into an eight-part series, titled Europa

That movie came out in 2011. Surely they've done something since?

It's got to be mixed feelings knowing that team is going to adapt your book, right?
