HAVANA" AND "The Russia House" are both headed for the countries that inspired them.
The distributor of MGM's ''Russia House'' is working on plans for theatrical distribution in the Soviet Union of Pathe Entertainment's film adaptation of John le Carre's spy novel.
"Nothing is firm" and MGM isn't yet discussing details, says a spokeswoman.
Meanwhile, le Carre's book will be published in the Soviet Union, "a first" for the writer, his agent says. Also something of an irony: The novel revolves around a dangerous attempt to smuggle a book of military secrets out of the country for Western publication.
