Today we get a first look at another one of my most anticipated films of 2013, Anton Corbijn's A Most Wanted Man, based on the novel by John le Carré and starring Willem Dafoe, Rachel McAdams, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Robin Wright and Daniel Brühl.

The story kicks off when a half-Chechen, half-Russian immigrant is tortured half-to-death and turns up in Hamburg's Islamic community, laying claim to his father's ill gotten fortune. Both German and US security agencies take a close interest and attempt to establish the man's true identity and determine whether he's an oppressed victim or destruction-bent extremist.

Hoffman plays the chief of a covert German spy unit with McAdams playing a young lawyer.

The film is currently in post and who knows, maybe it will make it into the Cannes Film Festival if Corbijn can finish in time, but I won't hold my breath. [THR]

    Hoffman makes any production more intriguing, even the upcoming Hunger Games sequel.

    I'm excited about this one too. A John le Carré story and the great Philip Seymour Hoffman in the cast - sounds like a winner.

    Definitely, this movie will be on the radar for the awards season. Hoffman wil be considered for acting awards as well as R. McAdams can receive her first nomination.
