Philip Seymour Hoffman in Lantana scribe’s next movie

Silver-screen veteran Philip Seymour Hoffman is set to join spy thriller “A Most Wanted Man” according to

Directed by Anton Corbijn, the modern-day spy film was written by Andrew Bovell (of “Lantana” fame) and is based on the bestselling novel penned by John le Carre.

Set in present-day Germany, the film follows a mysterious half-Russian, half-Chechen man who surfaces in the city’s Islamic community and is soon on the run and desperate for help. Determined to recover his late Russian father’s fortune, he is soon connected with a British private banker and a young female lawyer. As time passes, the story surrounding stops adding up and things surrounding him become darker and shadier.

All the while, all three of them are being watched by the brilliant chief of a covert German spy unit (Hoffman) who struggles to put together the pieces before time runs out.

Rachel McAdams, Willem Dafoe and Robin Wright are also set to be a part of the film, which will be produced by Ink Factory, Film4 and leCarre, with FilmNation Entertainment handling domestic and international sales.
