In the grip of the early winter blahs at the multiplex and with the blockbuster season just around the corner, it may seem that anything resembling a smart, adult drama is far, far away (this weekend's "Side Effects" being the exception). Well, not to fear, because Anton Corbijn is here and the "Control" and "The American" director is gearing up a new thriller, "A Most Wanted Man," and now we have our first look.

A Most Wanted Man Philip Seymour Hoffman Rachel McAdams

In the grip of the early winter blahs at the multiplex and with the blockbuster season just around the corner, it may seem that anything resembling a smart, adult drama is far, far away (this weekend's "Side Effects" being the exception). Well, not to fear, because Anton Corbijn is here and the "Control" and "The American" director is gearing up a new thriller, "A Most Wanted Man," and now we have our first look.

Starring Philip Seymour Hoffman, Rachel McAdams, Daniel Bruhl, Robin Wright and Willem Dafoe (ace cast, btw), the film tells the tale of a half-Chechen, half-Russian, tortured half-to-death immigrant who turns up in Hamburg’s Islamic community, laying claim to his father’s ill gotten fortune. Both German and U.S. security agencies take a close interest in him as the race is on to find out who he really is: oppressed victim or destruction-bent extremist? It's based on the novel by John Le Carré, and this is one we hope shows up either on the circuit or in theaters this year.

The goods news is that it's certainly a possibility as the movie is currently in post-production, but FilmNation still needs a find a U.S. distributor for this (it has already sold out pretty much everywhere else around the world). We're not sure what the delay is on somebody pulling the trigger, but here's hoping somebody does soon. [THR]
