Reliance Entertainment and IM Global announced have announced that Josh Holloway (‘Lost’), Richard Dreyfuss (‘Red’), Embeth Davidtz (‘The Amazing Spider-Man’) and Julian McMahon (‘Nip/Tuck’) have joined the cast of Robert Luketic’s high-tech corporate espionage thriller ‘Paranoia.’
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.
Lucas Till (‘X-Men: First Class’) and Amber Heard (‘The Rum Diary’) also co-star.
The screenplay, based on the novel Paranoia by Joseph Finder, was written by Jason Dean Hall (‘Spread’) from a previous draft by Barry Levy (‘Vantage Point’).
