First Pictures From Joseph Finder’s PARANOIA

Relativity Media has released the first pictures from PARANOIA. The film, which is based on Joseph Finder’s novel, stars Harrison Ford, Gary Oldman and Liam Hemsworth.

I spoke with Joseph at Bouchercon and while some of the actors don’t match his descriptions, he has been blow away with what he has seen so far and can’t wait for the final product.

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.

PARANOIA is directed by Robert Luketic (21, LEGALLY BLONDE), with a screenplay by James Dean Hall and Barry Levy,and will land in theaters on October 4th, 2013.
