First Look: Philip Seymour Hoffman, Rachel McAdams in 'A Most Wanted Man' (Exclusive)
Anton Corbijn is directing the modern-day espionage thriller, adapted from John le Carre's spy novel.
BERLIN -- Anton Corbijn is in postproduction on A Most Wanted Man, the spy thriller starring Philip Seymour Hoffman opposite Rachel McAdams.
Willem Dafoe and Robin Wright also star in the movie, which is based on John le Carre's acclaimed novel. Screenwriter Andrew Bovell adapted for the big screen.
FilmNation is representing worldwide rights to Most Wanted Man, which is virtually sold out around the world but still available in the U.S.
The spy thriller is set in present-day Hamburg, Germany, where a mysterious half-Chechen, half-Russian man, brutally scarred from torture, surfaces in the city’s Islamic community, on the run and desperate for help. He seeks to recover his late Russian father’s fortune and soon connects with a conflicted British private banker and a young female lawyer fiercely determined to protect the rights of persecuted emigres.
Nothing about the young man seems to add up -- is he a victim, a thief or, worse yet, an extremist intent on destruction? All the while, they are watched by the brilliant, roguish chief of a covert German spy unit (Hoffman), who fights to put together the pieces as the clock ticks.
New financing and production venture Demarest Films is co-financing and co-producing Most Wanted Man.
