Director Anton Corbijn, in addition to having a tough-to-spell last name, got a lot of critical acclaim for his arty 2010 thriller The American starring George Clooney. Now he appears to be taking on an even more prestigious project, A Most Wanted Man, based on the 2008 novel by John le CarrĂ©. The book is about “Chechian Muslim Issa who illegally immigrates to Hamburg, where he gets caught up in the international war on terror.”

If that sounds familiar to you, it’s loosely based on the real-life case of Murat Kurnaz, who was detained by the US government at Guantanamo Bay for several years – maybe the producers of this can score him some free tickets.

Anyway, no word on casting or anything yet, since this is still in the early stages. As big fan of The American and a bigger fan of Corbijn’s earlier Ian Curtis biopic Control, I’m excited about this news. Can you handle my excitement? Can you?? (The Hollywood Reporter)

George Clooney Has Sexy Company in ‘The American’ Teaser Trailer http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/george-clooney-has-sexy-company-in-the-american-teaser-trailer/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/george-clooney-has-sexy-company-in-the-american-teaser-trailer/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Hollywood seems to have an obsession with assassins, and this teaser trailer for The American only further proves that point. George Clooney plays a soul-searching gun-for-hire hiding out in Italy for one last job. A last job he's of course being coerced into completing. There are pretty women (who can't be trusted), a priest (who can't help ease Clooney's suffering), and surprisingly a lack of alcohol. C'mon, an assassin who's NOT an alcoholic? I don't buy it, Hollywood. I bet we're going to see a bottle of Jim Beam in the full trailer or the pistol in my desk drawer isn't stained with orphan blood. The film is directed by Anton Corbijn, whose last film Control profiled Ian Curtis, the lead singer of Joy Division, who commited suicide. Soooo he does bummer movies. Check out the trailer after the jump. The American hits theaters September 7, 2010.
