BBC spy series Spooks will make the leap to the big screen with a movie titled Spooks: The Greater Good.

Peter Firth will reprise his role as MI5 chief Harry Pearce in the film version, which will begin production in early 2014 with original series director Bharat Nalluri behind the camera.

The story revolves around terrorist Adam Qasim escaping MI5 custody during a handover to the head of counterterrorism. When Pearce vanishes, his protégé Will Crombie is tasked with finding out what happened as the clock ticks down to an attack on London.

Crombie eventually uncovers a conspiracy that runs from Vietnam to the Mediterranean, according to Screen Daily.

Spooks: The Greater Good was written by Jonathan Brackley and Sam Vincent, and will be produced by Kudos's Jane Featherstone and Stephen Garrett and Shine's Ollie Madden.

Spooks, known as MI-5 in the US, ran for 86 episodes from 2002 to 2011. It also spawned a short-lived spinoff, Spooks: Code 9, in 2008.

Matthew Macfadyen, David Oyelowo, Keeley Hawes, Jenny Agutter, Rupert Penry Jones, Richard Armitage, Sophia Myles and Lara Pulver all featured among the cast over Spooks' ten series.
