A Most Wanted Man

Looks like footage from Dutch filmmaker Anton Corbijn's John Le Carre adaptation "A Most Wanted Man" will be screened in the market at Berlin in February or Cannes in May. Talks were reportedly under way with Focus Features, which released Corbijn's last movie, the international thriller "The American." "A Most Wanted Man" stars Willem Dafoe, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Rachel McAdams, Robin Wright and Daniel Bruhl.

Ink Factory Films told The Film Stage that "A Most Wanted Man" wrapped on November 20 and is planning a fall 2013 release from Focus Features, but did not comment on festival plans. UPDATE: Focus has denied the acquisition.

Australian writer Andrew Bovell ("Lantana") adapted the Carré novel about a Hamburg terrorist cell's role in the 9/11 attacks.

    Sounds suitable for Berlin due to the political sub context.

    Thank you Bob! But--we are talking about footage, not necessarily the actual movie screening at the festivals. So in theory it would be possible to show footage at both. Though unlikely.

    If it plays the Berlinale I don't think it is eligible for Cannes -- at least not the festival. It could be in the market, of course.
