Will the next film adaptation of a John le Carré novel be as well-received as its predecessor?

The adaptation of the le Carré novel “A Most Wanted Man” will hit theaters later this year following the success of the 2011 film “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy," which earned actor Gary Oldman an Oscar nomination and also received a nod for Best Adapted Screenplay. “A Most Wanted Man” stars Philip Seymour Hoffman, Rachel McAdams, Robin Wright, Willem Dafoe, and “Rush” actor Daniel Brühl, among others. The movie is being directed by “The American” helmer Anton Corbjin.

“A Most Wanted Man” was released in 2008 and follows a man known as Issa who arrives illegally in Germany claiming to be in possession of a fortune. A young German lawyer named Annabel decides to try to help him remain in the country and, through the battle, encounters bank owner Tommy Brue, who also becomes involved in the mystery.

The film recently premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and a release date has not been announced beyond an estimation of sometime this year.
