Willem Dafoe is in talks to join Anton Corbijn's thriller A Most Wanted Man. Philip Seymour Hoffman and Rachel McAdams were originally set to star, but are being replaced by the actor and Robin Wright.

The story is based on a novel by John le Carré and centers a Chechen Muslim, who migrates to Hamburg and becomes a target in the worldwide war on terror.

Anton Corbijn is directing from a script provided by Andrew Bovell. Andrea Calderwood, Simon Cornwell, Stephen Cornwell, Gail Egan and Malte Grunert are producing.
