Lucas Till is looking over his shoulder.
The "X-Men: First Class" star has signed on to join Liam Hemsworth, Harrison Ford and Gary Oldman in the high-tech thriller, "Paranoia," according to Deadline's report that Relativity Media has picked up the U.S. distribution rights to the film.
Despite the rather generic title, "Paranoia" sounds like quite a unique little story. Based on the novel by Joseph Finder, the film follows Adam Cassidy (Hemsworth) as a blue-collar drone 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 (probably either Ford or Oldman), who won't turn Adam in under one condition: Adam must agree to infiltrate the competition (the CEO of which is probably either Ford or Oldman) as a corporate spy.
No word on who Till will be playing, though we imagine he'll be one of Hemsworth's colleagues, either at Wyatt Telecom or at the competition. There's also no word on whether Harrison Ford will be throwing Gary Oldman out of a airplane in this movie. Maybe something not so drastic this time? Perhaps "Get out of my office!" rather than "Get off my plane!"
Lucas Till was most recently seen as Alex Summers/Havok in "X-Men: First Class" and as a soldier trying to save the Santa Monica Promenade from alien invaders in "Battle: Los Angeles." He'll soon be seen in Park Chan-wook's "Stoker" and recently wrapped the erotic thriller, "Dark Hearts." He's currently shooting the reality-show-gone-wrong comedy, "Wet and Reckless."
"Paranoia" is set to commence with production this summer under the direction of Robert Luketic ("21"). The film will hit theaters on Sept. 27, 2013.
