Relativity Media announced today that it has acquired U.S. rights to market and distribute IM Global's currently-titled Paranoia, directed by Robert Luketic (21) and starring Liam Hemsworth, Oscar®-nominee Gary Oldman, Oscar®-nominee Harrison Ford and Lucas Till. Production is targeted to begin this summer and the film will release in theatres on September 27, 2013. IM Global will handle international distribution.
In this high-stakes thriller, Adam Cassidy (Liam Hemsworth) is a charming, blue collar guy trying to get ahead in his entry-level job at Wyatt Telecom. But after one costly and illegal mistake, Adam is confronted by ruthless CEO Nicholas Wyatt. He won't turn Adam in under one condition: Adam must agree to infiltrate the competition as a corporate spy. Adam soon finds himself packaged for success, surrounded by glamorous boardrooms, expensive cars, and a life he only dreamed of. But behind the scenes, Wyatt is pulling the strings - stopping at nothing, even murder, to win a multi-billion dollar advantage. Realizing he's nothing more than a pawn in his boss's ruthless game, Adam's only way out - is to go in deeper.
Relativity's President, Tucker Tooley, said this.
"Paranoia is a gripping story and we're excited to add the project to our growing slate bolstered by this stellar cast. We look forward to working with our partners IM Global on bringing this film to audiences everywhere."
