Hoffman to Star with Hanks and Then Face the "Devil"

by | June 19, 2006 | Comments

Fresh off his Best Actor Oscar for "Capote," Philip Seymour Hoffman now has a pair of high-profile projects underway. In the first one he’ll co-star with Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts — and the second is with legendary director Sidney Lumet.

Courtesy of IGN FilmForce: "One is "Charlie Wilson’s War" for Universal Pictures. Hoffman would join fellow Oscar winners Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts in the Mike Nichols-directed drama. Aaron Sorkin penned the screenplay adaptation of George Crile’s fact-based book. The story follows a former Texas congressman (Hanks) who teams with a rogue CIA agent (Hoffman) to fight Communists in war-torn 1980s Afghanistan.

Hoffman’s second project is director Sidney Lumet’s "Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead," which also stars Ethan Hawke, Marisa Tomei and Albert Finney. Lumet, Kelly Masterson and Austin Chick penned the script for Devil, which Variety says is "about brothers who try to rob their parents’ jewelry store, only to botch the job."
