Latest updates

No one can accuse director of Menno Meyjes of choosing an easy subject for his first directorial outing could they? Hoffman tells the fictional (it has to be) tale of a Jewish art teacher, called Hoffman and played by John Cusack trying to broaden Adolf Hitler's art appreciation after Hitler's return from the first world war. Apparently Hitler was really interested in painting for a while, but fell out of love with it and really hated modern painting.

Quite a heavy idea isn't it, apparently John Cusack views the script as the best one he has seen since Being John Malkovich. I think it's quite say to say we are not in blockbuster territory with this movie and its audience will more than likely be the art house circuit.

Menno Meyjes isn't probably a name you will have heard of before, I know I hadn't, he previously cowrote The Siege and The Color Purple. Which certainly gives him a background in dealing with race problems.

Noah Taylor is playing Hitler in Hoffman, which will certainly be a complex and 'interesting' character for him to play to try and get within the mind of the world's most famous mass murderer. Noah Taylor has most recently been seen on our screens in Tomb Raider and is following that up with roles inVanilla Sky, The Sleeping Dictionary and the amusingly titled He Died With A Felafel In His Hand!

Also signed up for the movie is Molly Parker who recently starred in Wayne Wang's sexually charged The Center Of The World as a stripper.

Filming is going to be in Budapest and Amsterdam later this year with a budget of $11.5 million.
