David Tennant Linked To Litvinenko TV Drama


David Tennant is being lined up to play Alexander Litvinenko in a new ITV drama according to today’s Guardian

Richard Brooks reports: Following Litvinenko’s poisoning in London in 2006, the case has since proved popular for adaptation and retelling. A play, A Very Expensive Poison, about his assassination has just opened at the Old Vic, itself loosely based on the book of the same name by Guardian journalist Luke Harding. Now ITV has a script from George Kay, who penned two episodes of Killing Eve, and whose 12-part drama, Criminal, premieres on Netflix later this month.

It goes on to say David is favourite for the role of Litvinenko. The TV series is itself based on Channel 4’s 2017 documentary Hunting the KGB Killers, whose producer, Richard Kerbaj, is behind the ITV series, along with drama veteran Patrick Spence.
