Deadline has learned that Robert Luketic is set to direct Liam Hemsworth, Harrison Ford, Gary Oldman and Lucas Till (‘X-Men: First Class’) in ‘Paranoia,’ an adaptation of the corporate espionage novel by Joseph Finder.
‘The Huger Games’ star Hemsworth will take the lead as Adam Cassidy, “a low-level employee at a high-tech corporation who hates his job. When he manipulates the system to do something nice for a friend, he finds himself charged with a crime. Corporate Security gives him a choice: prison—or become a spy in the headquarters of their chief competitor, Trion Systems.
At Trion, he’s a star, skyrocketing to the top. He’s rich, drives a Porsche, lives in a fabulous apartment, and works directly for the CEO. His life is perfect. And all he has to do to keep it that way is betray everyone he cares about and everything he believes in.
Production is scheduled for the summer with Luketic helming from a screenplay by Jason Hall (‘Spread’).
