An international trailer has been released for A Most Wanted Man, a new thriller from director Anton Corbijn (Control, The American). Based on the best-selling novel from author John le Carré, A Most Wanted Man tells the story of a Chechen Muslim who, after illegally immigrating to Hamburg, gets caught up in the international war on terror. A strange love-triangle forms among the Muslim, an idealistic German civil rights lawyer, and a sixty-year-old man who is inheriting a failing British bank. There’s quite an impressive cast on display, with Philip Seymour Hoffman and his accent leading the pack. Daniel Brühl, Rachel McAdams, Robin Wright and Willem Dafoe also star.
There is no official release date as yet, but the film is set to premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in a few weeks.
Official synopsis for A Most Wanted Man:
When a half-Chechen, half-Russian, tortured half-to-death immigrant 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: as the clock ticks down and the stakes rise, the race is on to establish this most wanted man’s true identity – oppressed victim or destruction-bent extremist?
