Yesterday I got to speak with Gary Oldman for his new movie Red Riding Hood.  While I’ll have the full interview online very soon, I was able to get updates on Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises and director Tomas Alfredson’s (Let The Right One In) Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy.

For those hoping that The Dark Knight Rises will be as awesome as The Dark Knight, Oldman (who plays Commissioner Gordon) told me that he’s spoken to Nolan about the story and calls it “fantastic.”  He then said, “You think you can’t top The Dark Knight and I think he may have.”

Regarding Alfredson’s follow up to Let The Right One In, Oldman said it’s probably the greatest role he’s ever played.  Which after looking at his amazing resume, is saying something.  The Cold War thriller centers on semi-retired agent George Smiley (Oldman) who is pulled out of semi-retirement to ferret out a Soviet mole within MI6.  The film has an impressive cast that also includes Oscar-winner Colin Firth, Tom Hardy, Mark Strong, Ciaran Hinds, John Hurt and Toby Jones.  Hit the jump to watch the interview:
