"A Most Wanted Man," one of the final films to star late actor Philip Seymour Hoffman, is released in theatres nationwide July 25.

Based on the novel by John le Carre, the spy thriller has a screenplay by playwright Andrew Bovell (When the Rain Stops Falling). Directed by Anton Corbijn, it also stars Rachel McAdams, Robin Wright and Willem Dafoe.

Hoffman died Feb. 2 of a drug overdose in Manhattan. His other films to be released include those in the "The Hunger Games" franchise.

Here's how the film is described by Roadside Attractions: "When a half-Chechen, half-Russian, brutally tortured immigrant turns up in Hamburg's Islamic community, laying claim to his father's ill gotten fortune, both German and US security agencies take a close interest: as the clock ticks down and the stakes rise, the race is on to establish this most wanted man's true identity - oppressed victim or destruction-bent extremist? Based on John le Carré's novel, 'A Most Wanted Man' is a contemporary, cerebral tale of intrigue, love, rivalry, and politics that prickles with tension right through to its last heart-stopping scene."
