Robin Wright for ‘Wanted Man’

Thesp boards adaptation of le Carre thriller

Robin Wright is in talks to star in a feature adaptation of the John le Carre tome “A Most Wanted Man.”

“The American” helmer Anton Corbijn is directing from a script by Andrew Bovell. Original story revolved around a Chechnian Muslim who illegally immigrates to Hamburg, Germany, where he gets caught up in the international war on terror.

Andrea Calderwood, Simon Cornwell, Stephen Cornwell, Gail Egan and Malte Grunert will produce through Amusement Park Films, Demarest Films, Film4, the Ink Factory and Potboiler Prods.

Le Carre novels have been hot properties for Hollywood in recent years. Besides its 2011 film “Tinker Tailor Solder Spy,” starring Gary Oldman, Focus Features also saw nice results from 2005’s “The Constant Gardener,” which received a supporting actress Oscar for Rachel Weisz and three other nominations.

The CAA-repped Wright was most recently seen in Sony’s “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.”
