As if the cast wasn't already impressive, Phillip Seymour Hoffman has just joined the production of "Child 44". The amazing roster already includes Gary Oldman, Noomi Rapace, Tom Hardy and Joel Kinnaman.

Directed by Daniel Espinosa ("Safe House") the film is based on Tom Rob Smith's Soviet spy novel. The script was penned by Richard Price and Ridley Scott is producing with Michael Schaefer and Greg Shapiro.

Here's the synopsis of the book:

Stalin's Soviet Union is an official paradise, where citizens live free from crime and fear only one thing: the all-powerful state. Defending this system is idealistic security officer Leo Demidov, a war hero who believes in the iron fist of the law. But when a murderer starts to kill at will and Leo dares to investigate, the State's obedient servant finds himself demoted and exiled. Now, with only his wife at his side, Leo must fight to uncover shocking truths about a killer-and a country where "crime" doesn't exist.

    Thought it would have been a good movie but all the f bombs/constant cussing where unnecessary and the sexual innuendos where disgusting! The actions scenes were done rather well and the plot was good, just bad screen writers. Could have been a movie for everyone. Hope there is no sequel, if there is, it is NOT getting my money again

    I would love to see a sequel. And I agree with having someone with no action movie experience but is still as kick butt as Colin Firth!
