The story centers on Adam Cassidy (Liam Hemsworth), an ambitious entry-level employee at a telecommunications firm, who gets into trouble with the company's CEO. Instead of turning him in, the executive sends him to spy on a rival company. Julian McMahon will play Meechum, although no further details were given regarding his character. Harrison Ford, Gary Oldman, Lucas Till, and Amber Heard also star.
