Josh Holloway Finds Paranoia Opposite Liam Hemsworth
Paranoia, a corporate thriller based on the book by Joseph Finder, continues to add to its impressive ensemble. Led by The Hunger Games' Liam Hemsworth, the story of corporate espionage already features several top line actors including legends Gary Oldman, Harrison Ford and Richard Dreyfuss as well as Lucas Till, Amber Heard, Embeth Davidtz, Julian McMahon and, new addition, Josh Holloway.
Variety reports that the former Lost star has joined Paranoia as an FBI agent investigating the white collar crimes in which Hemsworth's junior technologist (Adam Cassidy, if the character remains the same as the novel) becomes entangled. The crimes in question occur when Hemsworth's character is blackmailed by the CEO of his current company and sent undercover to spy on their main competitor. It's this year's Antitrust! Although, I think they're going more for Margin Call. I'll watch Holloway in anything, Sawyer being my favorite character on the ABC drama, and I wish he had been cast in the Jeremy Renner role in Ghotocol instead of his own. Or any of the too many high-profile parts Renner has lined up. Share the wealth man.
Speaking of wealth, Paranoia has also found two new co-financiers, Demarest Films and E Stars Entertainment, to help share the load with Reliance Entertainment with production starting Friday. Relatively is distributing and has scheduled a September 27, 2013 US release. Paranoia was adapted from Finer's novel (and a previous draft by Barry Levy) by Jason Dean Hall and will be directed by Robert Luketic. Dean Hall's only previous credit is the 2009 Ashton Kutcher comedy Spread while Levy wrote Vantage Point. On the bright side, Luketic's past is equally uninspiring since he's coming off back to back Katherine Heigl movies.
