Vincent Cassel Replacing Philip Seymour Hoffman In Child 44


Russian spy thriller Child 44 is losing Philip Seymour Hoffman but gaining Vincent Cassel, according to Deadline.

Daniel Espinosa has been directing the film based on the Tom Rob Smith novel since June, with Tom Hardy playing Leo Stepanovich Demidov, a disgraced Soviet spy who investigates a series of grisly child murders. Noomi Rapace plays his wife Raisa, whose loyalty is a front for her own secrets.

Gary Oldman, Joel Kinnaman and Matthias Schoenaerts also star, so Cassel seems like a great addition to this all-star international cast.
