For some reason every time I see Amber Heard, I think of that line from DUMB & DUMBER that Lloyd says to Harry, "I just got that old fashioned romantic feeling where I'd do anything to bone her."
My old fashioned feelings aside, the lovely Ms. Heard is in talks to take the female lead opposite Liam Hemsworth in PARANOIA. She will also be joining Harrison Ford and Gary Oldman. Yep, that's a casting boner right there.
Robert Luketic, director of movies I don't care for like THE UGLY TRUTH and KILLERS will helm this adaptation of Joseph Finder's novel. The film centers on Hemsworth, "as a blue-collar guy who makes a costly and illegal mistake while trying to get ahead in his entry-level job. His boss agrees not to turn him in under one condition: he must infiltrate the competition as a corporate spy. Protag quickly learns that he's a pawn in his boss' game. Heard is making a deal to play Hemsworth's love interest, an intended one-night-stand who becomes the key to his success as a spy when he learns that she works at the rival company."
Production on PARANOIA is set to start in July with a release date of Sept. 27, 2013.
