After a nine year run on the small screen, "Spooks" (AKA "MI-5") is receiving the big screen treatment in a feature length movie, scheduled for release May 8th 2015. The film is helmed by Bharat Nalluri, who directed the first two episodes of the television series back in 2002 and has more recently directed "Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day" (2008) and a series of episodes for the 2012-13 series "Emily Owens M.D.".

The film stars Peter Firth as Harry Pearce (the only surviving member of original team) and boasts a cast that includes Kit Harington ("Game of Thrones"), Lara Pulver ("Fleming"), David Harewood ("24") and Tim McInnerny, who guest-starred as Oliver Mace in a handful of episodes back in 2004.

Official Plot Synopsis: When charismatic terrorist Adem Qasim (Elyes Gabel) escapes from MI5 custody during a high profile handover, legendary operative Harry Pearce (Peter Firth), Head of Counter-terrorism, is blamed. Disgraced and forced to resign, Harry disappears without a trace. With MI5 on its knees in the wake of the Qasim debacle and facing controversial reform, former agent Will Holloway (Kit Harington) is brought back from Moscow to discover the truth about Harry's disappearance and in doing so, uncovers a shocking revelation; Harry is still alive, has gone rogue and he desperately needs Will's help. Will must decide whether to turn Harry in - or risk everything by trusting the damaged, dangerous master spy who betrayed him once before...
