The Wrong Element: According to Variety, Harrison Ford will topline The Wrong Element, a thriller to be financed and distributed by Warner Bros.

Joe Forte scripted. A director will be signed shortly.

Ford and Beacon last teamed on the Wolfgang Petersen-directed hit Air Force One, a film that was also produced by Bernstein and Shestack, who was a Beacon veep at the time.

Here, Ford would play the security chief for a global bank whose family is kidnapped. He's asked to topple his own security safeguards and steal $37 million from the bank to save his family. Then he has to stop the kidnappers, who've created a complex trail that will make him look guilty of embezzlement.
