Amber Heard to star in Paranoia

June 20th, 2012

Amber Heard is set to star in 'Paranoia'.

The actress is said to be close to signing up to appear in the corporate thriller, alongside Harrison Ford, Gary Oldman and Liam Hemsworth.

The film - which will be directed by Robert Luketic and is a big screen adaptation of Joseph Finder's titular novel - sees Hemsworth play a blue-collar worker who makes a serious mistake when he tries to get ahead and move on from his dull entry-level job.

His boss then offers him a deal, in which he says he won't tell on him if Hemsworth's alter-ego agrees to infiltrate the competition for a little corporate espionage.

Heard will play a woman Hemsworth sleeps with on a one night stand, but she ends up becoming much more important to him when he discovers that she works for the very rival company he's trying to spy on.

Filming is scheduled to start next month, with the movie coming out next year.
