Harrison Ford and Gary Oldman will face off via Liam Hemsworth in the thriller Paranoia
Even though Harrison Ford told him to get the hell off of his plane in AIR FORCE ONE, Gary Oldman will be battling one another under different circumstances in the upcoming thriller PARANOIA.
Ford and Oldman will play a pair of high level executives who both attempt to mentor a young upstart played by Liam Hemsworth. Needless to say, money becomes the root of all evil for Hemsworth.
Plot: In this high-stakes thriller, Adam Cassidy (Liam Hemsworth) is an ambitious junior technologist trying to climb the ranks of telecom giant Wyatt Corporation. But after one costly mistake, Adam is blackmailed by ruthless CEO Nicholas Wyatt (Gary Oldman) to turn corporate spy by going to work for the firm’s top competitor, which is run by Wyatt’s old mentor, Jock Goddard (Harrison Ford). Adam soon finds himself delivered into prepackaged success, living his fantasy life of old-world boardrooms, private clubs, exotic cars, and all the spoils of Manhattan bachelorhood. However, behind the scenes, he is merely a pawn in Wyatt’s power play, and must search for a way out from under his boss, who will stop at nothing, even murder, to gain a multi-billion dollar advantage.
Sounds like a timely plot pitting the 1% against the 99%. The imagine Hemsworth will do a lot of running in the film while Oldman and Ford get to chew their scenes in the way only they can.
PARANOIA is being directed by Robert Luketic. In addition to the three male leads, the cast also includes Lucas Till (X-MEN FIRST CLASS), Amber Heard (THE RUM DIARY), Embeth Davidtz (THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, ARMY OF DARKNESS), Julian McMahon (NIP/TUCK), Josh Holloway (LOST) and Oscar®-winner Richard Dreyfuss (RED).
