The late Philip Seymour Hoffman lives on in the new trailer for “A Most Wanted Man,” one of the actor’s final films.

Hoffman plays the role of Gunter Bachmann, a German spy tracking terrorist activity in Hamburg.

“German intelligence needs a job to be done that German law won’t let it do,” the actor says in a thick German accent in the trailer.

The thriller from Lionsgate and Roadside Attractions, directed by Anton Corbijn and based on John le Carre’s 2008 novel, also stars Rachel McAdams, Willem Dafoe and Robin Wright.

“A Most Wanted Man” premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January and hits theaters on July 25.

Hoffman’s other films set for posthumous release include John Slattery’s “God’s Pocket” and Francis Lawrence’s “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1.”
