Liam Hemsworth is officially in the big leagues now.
The first images from his upcoming thriller “Paranoia” have hit the web, and one shows him facing off with Hollywood heavyweight Harrison Ford. While Hemsworth looks his usual charming self (albeit a bit more put together than when we last saw him in “The Expendables 2”), Ford looks pretty threatening with his bald head and accusing gaze.
“Paranoia” follows Hemsworth as an entry-level employee who becomes a corporate spy. Harrison plays the mogul who Hemsworth infiltrates. No wonder there looks like there’s some serious tension between the two of them in the above picture.
Relativity picked up the rights to “Paranoia” from IM Global five months ago. In addition to Hemsworth and Ford, the film stars Gary Oldman, Lucas Till and Amber Heard. It’s due in theaters on October 4, 2013. “Paranoia” was based on the Joseph Finder novel of the same name, and directed by “Legally Blonde’s” Robert Luketic. Here’s the movie’s official synopsis:
“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.”
