Corporate thriller Paranoia starring Oldman, Ford, and Hemsworth will start shooting this summer
What follows is also known not just as news, but very good news: Gary Oldman and Harrison Ford, two of the most talented actors of their generation, will be working together on a corporate thriller that is going to begin shooting this summer with an eye towards releasing on September 27th, 2013.
They'll be joined by (relative) youngsters Lucas Till (X-MEN: FIRST CLASS) and Liam Hemsworth in the story of "Adam Cassidy (Hemsworth), a charming, blue collar guy trying to get ahead in his entry-level job at Wyatt Telecom. But after one costly and illegal mistake, Adam is confronted by ruthless CEO Nicholas Wyatt. He won't turn Adam in under one condition: Adam must agree to infiltrate the competition as a corporate spy. Adam soon finds himself packaged for success, surrounded by glamorous boardrooms, expensive cars, and a life he only dreamed of. But behind the scenes, Wyatt is pulling the strings - stopping at nothing, even murder, to win a multi-billion dollar advantage. Realizing he's nothing more than a pawn in his boss's ruthless game, Adam's only way out - is to go in deeper."
PARANOIA will be directed by Robert Luketic (21), with the original draft by Barry Levy (VANTAGE POINT) having received a rewrite from Jason Dean Hall (SPREAD). The script itself is actually an adaptation of the novel of the same name by Joseph Finder.
On a scale of excited to excited, how excited are you for this? I'd say I'm excited.
|Extra Tidbit:||How have Ford and Oldman not worked together before? I'm not sure, but here's to sincerely hoping they do it again soon.|
