Harrison Ford, Liam Hemsworth, and Gary Oldman are suited for Paranoia in these first photos

3 years agoby:

The last time that Harrison Ford and Gary Oldman starred in a movie together, Ford was President of the United States and Oldman was a Russian terrorist. That was 1997. Now, fifteen years later, the two actors are older, wiser, but still going against each other. This time the arena is just as political but not in a government capacity.

Ford and Oldman are starring alongside Liam Hemsworth in the corporate espionage thriller PARANOIA for director Robert Luketic (21, THE UGLY TRUTH). From the looks of these first two images from the movie, Oldman and Hemsworth look like their normal selves but Harrison Ford looks a little different.

Ford buzzed his hair as a way to get deeper into the "high flying nature" of his character. For me, it definitely shows the actor's age. Even in KINGDOM OF THE CRYSTAL SKULL and COWBOYS & ALIENS, he still looked like Harrison Ford. Here, he looks every bit his real age.

Plot: In this high-stakes thriller, Adam Cassidy (Liam Hemsworth) is 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.

But, what can we expect from the rematch of the two AIR FORCE ONE actors? "There is a real contest of wills between the two of us here," says Ford of Paranoia, adding that the film's title is appropriate for the high-stakes business empire. "It's a world that is well served by being even more paranoid than the characters actually are."

PARANOIA opens September 27, 2013.

Extra Tidbit: I would be excited for this movie if I had any faith in the director. Which I don't.

I love Gary Oldman and Harrison Ford as much as the next guy, but seriously doubt Luketic's ability to deliver a good dramatic thriller. I'm also interested to see if Liam Hemsworth can hold his own against those two. Uh, good luck Gale.

Harrison Ford as...

Gene Hackman from ENEMY OF THE STATE... in... THE PROFESSIONAL 2: THE PROFESSIONALING
'Cause Oldman looks like his character from the Professional. And I'm high.

Ford has made some really poor choices over the past 20 years.

I'm hoping the actors can elevate it cause I doubt the director can. "21" was god awful.

Robert Luketic is underrated for how awful and untalented he is

His resume reads like a list of 'how the fuck did that get made's. Every single one is fishy. Where'd the budget come from? Why did anyone green light the horrible script?

This will suck. It sounds like a MOW from 1995. What a waste of time and money.

On top of having a shitty director at the helm, I really wish they wouldn't mention murder in the plot synopsis. That just cheapens the premise for me. I'll be waiting the whole time for someone to end up dead. It's corporate intrigue, which I think is a lot more interesting when it deals with live people than dead ones. Or at least make it suicide instead of homicide.
