LOS ANGELES, April 11 (UPI) -- Late actor Philip Seymour Hoffman stars in the first official trailer for A Most Wanted Man.

The actor died at age 46 in February, and the role is one of his last on film. Hoffman portrays a German intelligence officer, Günther Bachmann, in the upcoming movie.

A Most Wanted Man is based on the 2008 John le Carré novel of the same name. The story follows Bachmann as he tracks half-Chechen, half-Russian immigrant Issa Karpov (Grigoriy Dobrygin) in Germany. He believes Karpov will lead him to Dr. Faisal Abdullah (Homayoun Ershadi), a respected academic whom Bachmann suspects has terrorist connections.

Rachel McAdams also stars in the film as lawyer Annabel Richter. A Most Wanted Man debuts in theaters on July 25.
