Dustin Hoffman and Alan Rickman are teaming up to star in the feature film adaptation of PATRICK SUSKIND's international bestseller PERFUME: THE STORY OF A MURDERER.

Hoffman will play GIUSEPPE BALDINI, the perfume maker, and Rickman will portray ANTOINE, the merchant father of a young woman who becomes the subject of obsession for JEAN-BAPTISTE GRENOUILLE, the central character in the film, to be played by British actor Ben Whishaw, according to the HOLLYWOOD REPORTER.

Grenouille's obsession turns to murder when he seeks to bottle the scent of the beautiful young virgin in the tale, which is set in 18th century Paris.

Tom Tykwer, who directed Run Lola Run, will helm the picture.
