Anton Corbijn's adaptation of the John le Carre thriller, "A Most Wanted Man," began principal photography this week in Hamburg.  The film stars Philip Seymour Hoffman, Rachel McAdams, Willem Dafoe and Robin Wright.  Corbijn ("The American") directs the film, which Australian writer Andrew Bovell ("Lantana") adapted for the screen.

"A Most Wanted Man" tells a gripping story of a half-Chechen, half-Russian immigrant who emerges in Hamburg's Islamic community, aiming to find his father's illegitimately-gained fortune.  When German and US security agencies seek to deter his efforts, questions about the morality of the man's intentions loom as tensions reach a boiling point.

The adaptation of this novel marks the ninth of John Le Carre's 23 books to reach the screen. Others include "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy," "The Constant Gardener," "The Russia House" and "The Spy Who Came In From The Cold."
