Senator Film Production has joined the A Most Wanted Man as a co-producer.

Anton Corbijn [pictured] directs the John Le Carre adaptation.

The project will start shooting this autumn in Hamburg.

The other partners on the film are Amusement Park Films, Potboiler Film and Ink Factory.

As previously reported, Philip Seymour Hoffman wills tar.

Set in present-day Hamburg, the film is about a man on the run who looks for help from the city’s Islamic community.

Senator Film Verleih will release the film in Germany in 2013.

Film4 co-developed and co-finances the film, with Tessa Ross serving as executive producer.

Senator Entertainment CEO Helge Sasse said: “A Most Wanted Man is an international bestseller set in Hamburg, Germany, and we are happy that the support of the Hamburg and Berlin subsidies made it possible for the producers to shoot it in Germany. So that made it a natural project, we’re pleased to be part in, as it not only fits Senator’s slate and is our kind of movie, it allows us to participate in the production a major international blockbuster right on our doorstep. I’m looking forward very much to working withAnton Corbijn and the production team on this hotly anticipated project.”
