One film that was still looking for distribution is now officially able to be crossed off that list. Anton Corbijn, director Control (2007) and The American (2010), hasn’t found much success on the awards front as of yet although has gathered a strong following. His newest film A Most Wanted Man, adapted by the book by John le Carré, has an all-star cast assembled that includes Oscar-winner Philip Seymour Hoffman along with Rachel McAdams, Willem Dafoe, Daniel Bruhl, and Robin Wright.
It was reported by Deadline that the film has now been acquired by Lionsgate, the same studio that found awards success with Naomi Watts for The Impossible (2012) last year. No official release date has been announced and its currently not scheduled to play at any of the upcoming festivals which means we may be looking at a 2014 release at this point.
The synopsis is below via iMDB:
