Amber Heard appears set to join Robert Luketic’s Paranoia as the female lead, Variety reports. She’d join Liam Hemsworth, Harrison Ford and Gary Oldman.
The project has been in development for some time and will adapt the novel by Joseph Finder. Originally drafted by Barry Levy, the most recent version arrives from Jason Hall.
The story centers on a young man who funds a lavish retirement party for a co-worker with company funds and is caught by his boss. Accused of embezzlement, he agrees to spy for the boss to avoid prosecution. He is forced to infiltrate a rival company and steal information on a top-secret project.
Heard recently appeared in Drive Angry and The Rum Diary and was a regular on the short-lived NBC series “The Playboy Club.”
