Source: ComingSoon

July 20, 2012

Principal photography begins Saturday (July 21, 2012) on Robert Luketic’s (21) currently-titled Paranoia, Reliance Entertainment and IM Global announced today. In addition Demarest Films, a financing and production company which was launched in April by Lambert Media Group’s Michael Lambert and Sam Englebardt and William D. Johnson, has joined the $40 million picture as co-financier and co-producer, while Beijing’s E Stars Entertainment will co-finance. Paranoia will be distributed in the U.S. by Relativity Media.

This high-tech corporate espionage thriller stars Liam Hemsworth (The Hunger Games), Gary Oldman (The Dark Knight Rises), Harrison Ford ("Indiana Jones" and "Star Wars" films), Lucas Till (X-Men: First Class), Amber Heard (The Rum Diary), Embeth Davidtz (The Amazing Spider-Man), Julian McMahon ("Nip/Tuck"), Josh Holloway ("LOST") and Richard Dreyfuss (Red).

Paranoia is being produced by Alexandra Milchan of Emjag Productions, William D. Johnson of Demarest Films and Deepak Nayar of Kintop Reliance, Reliance’s joint production venture with Kintop Pictures. IM Global CEO Stuart Ford, Scott Lambert of Film 360, Sam Englebardt of Demarest Films, Allen Liu of E Stars, Douglas Urbanski, Christophe Riandee of Gaumont, Ryan Kavanaugh and Tucker Tooley of Relativity Media will serve as executive producers.

Said IM Global CEO Ford, “Reliance and IM Global are delighted that Demarest Films and E Stars have joined us as partners on the eve of what promises to be an exciting project for all of us.”

Producer William D. Johnson of Demarest Films said, “The creative team behind 'Paranoia' as well as our producing partners at IM Global and Kintop Reliance will no doubt bring this thriller to life on the big screen. This is the type of film Demarest is looking to get involved in – commercially viable projects which will evoke audiences in the U.S. and abroad.”

Relativity acquired U.S. rights to market and distribute Paranoia on the eve of Cannes Film Festival, with IM Global handling international distribution. The film is set to debut in U.S. theatres on September 27, 2013.

Collaborating with Luketic behind the scenes are director of photography David Tattersall (The Green Mile), production designer David Brisbin (Sinister), art director Scott Anderson (Win Win), costume designer Luca Mosca (21), editor Dany Cooper (Queen of the Damned), and stunt coordinator Stephen Pope. Filming will take place on location in Philadelphia and New York City.

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.

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).

The Poster for Paranoia, Starring Hemsworth, Oldman and Ford

Source: ComingSoon

June 14, 2013

We got the trailer earlier this month and now Relativity Media has released the poster for Paranoia, opening August 16 and starring Liam Hemsworth, Gary Oldman, Amber Heard, Harrison Ford, Lucas Till, Embeth Davidtz, Julian McMahon, Josh Holloway and Richard Dreyfuss.

The high stakes thriller takes us deep behind the scenes of global success to a deadly world of greed and deception. The two most powerful tech billionaires in the world (Harrison Ford and Gary Oldman) are bitter rivals with a complicated past who will stop at nothing to destroy each other. A young superstar (Liam Hemsworth), seduced by unlimited wealth and power falls between them, and becomes trapped in the middle of the twists and turns of their life-and-death game of corporate espionage. By the time he realizes his life is in danger, he is in far too deep and knows far too much for them to let him walk away.
