Just over two months ago one of the best film actors of his generation, Philip Seymour Hoffman died. During his life Seymour Hoffman was ever prolific, starring in well over fifty movies and winning dozens of awards along the way and this June a new Seymour Hoffman film sees the light of day.
A Most Wanted Man is a thriller based on a novel by famous British writer, John le Carré and is directed by Anton Corbijn. In the film Seymour Hoffman plays Gunter Bachmann, a German spy who runs a counter-intelligence unit intent on infiltrating the Jihadist network involved in 9/11, and the film also stars Rachel McAdams, Robin Wright andWillem Defoe.
I really enjoyed Anton Corbijn‘s last feature (the George Clooney starring), The American, and by the looks of the trailer below (and the early reviews) this looks like being another good ‘un:
A Most Wanted Man gets a limited release in US cinemas on the 25th July – as yet there’s no scheduled UK release date.
