‘A Most Wanted Man’ stars Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Rachel McAdams and Robin Wright.
Tragically Seymour Hoffman died earlier this year of a heroine overdose. ‘A Most Wanted Man’ was one of the last films he worked on.
At the premier in New York, his co-stars paid tribute to him. Rachel McAdams said: “I think he’s one of the greatest actors that ever lived, so it’s a real loss to the world, obviously. But this is another incredible performance by him.”
Robin Wright said working with him had been an inspiring experience: “He was one of our greats, an incredible actor. We had worked together years ago on a little thing we did for HBO. And always wanted to immerse ourselves in something meaty, and we finally got to do it. I feel blessed to have worked with him.”
The film, directed by Anton Corbijn, is based on the novel by John Le Carre and tells the story of a Chechen-Russian immigrant on the run in Germany after 9/11.
Hoffman plays a spy who thinks that finding this man could lead to finding other, bigger terrorists.
‘A Most Wanted Man’ is on screens this summer.
