A Most Wanted Man / Rachel McAdams

British author John le Carre is no stranger to adaptations of his work. Last year's movie based on his 1974 novel Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy garnered rave reviews upon its release, and now another of le Carre's books is getting the big screen treatment. THR reports Rachel McAdams has joined Philip Seymour Hoffman in the cast of A Most Wanted Man, the adaptation of le Carre's 2008 novel about a mysterious man who comes to Germany searching for a Russian fortune. Hoffman plays a German spy out to find this man's true identity, and McAdams will be a civil rights lawyer who is caught in international espionage.

Andrew Bovell (Edge of Darkness) adapted the screenplay for The American director Anton Corbijn, and if the movie is anything like the book, it will be doused with references to the War on Terror and all sorts of condemnations about America's methods regarding torture, extradition, and more. It sounds like a very "of the moment" type of movie, and I can see why they want to capitalize on such a story now while it's still in the American consciousness. I haven't read le Carre's book personally or seen any of the films based on his work, but I'm a big fan of McAdams and Hoffman, so I'm interested already. I'm especially excited to see McAdams step out of her light-hearted comfort zone and into something that sounds a bit more dense, similar to what she did with State of Play a few years back. Interested?

      Translation: A storm is coming and the resulting tornado could blow us all away.  It's really cool to have McAdams and Hoffman working on a Le Carre film because even if you gave these three dirt they could still turn it into gold.
