Amber Heard is set for the female lead of Robert Luketic's Paranoia. Variety reports that the Drive Angry actress will star opposite Liam Hemsworth, Harrison Ford, and Gary Oldman. 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."
Paranoia is based on Joseph Finder's novel, and has been in various stages of development for some time. Jason Hall penned the most recent screenplay, revising Barry Levy's original draft. Heard has also recently starred opposite Johnny Depp in The Rum Diary and was a regular on NBC's The Playboy Club.
This looks as though it will be Heard's meatiest role to date. Does Paranoia sound like a movie you would like to see?
