Seymour Hoffman joins Child 44

Philip Seymour Hoffman has signed up to star in political murder mystery Child 44.

Moneyball actor Philip will appear in the tense thriller directed by Daniel Espinosa and produced by Ridley Scott, said Variety.

The film is adapted from the Tom Rob Smith best-selling novel of the same name and follows a disgraced member of the Soviet Union police during the Stalin era.

The ex-policeman is investigating a series of child murders that connect to high up members of a political party.

Child 44 is the first in a trilogy of thrillers.

Philip joins a star cast including Tom Hardy, Paddy Considine, Noomi Rapace, Gary Oldman and Joel Kinnaman, although the roles assigned to each actor haven't been released yet.

Child 44 is due to be released in cinemas in 2014.

Joining a discussion group will be lots of fun. You'll enjoy brainstorming with fellow visionaries. The idea for a community improvement project is worth developing. You and your neighbours will benefit from a beautiful gathering spot. It's easy to feel alienated in this technological age. Create a space where you can escape computers, telephones and artificial lighting. Don't be surprised when you feel compelled to visit this sanctuary every day. Spending time outdoors will make you more relaxed and productive.More
