Paranoia, directed by Robert Luketic, from a screenplay by Jason Hall and Barry L. Levy is based on the bestselling book by .

Paranoia began with Joseph Finder's New York Times best-selling techno-thriller novel of the same name. The book hit upon what would soon become some of the biggest questions of our times: Has corporate power grown out of control? Where is the line between mining digital data and dangerous, invasive surveillance?

Producer Alexandra Milchan read the book and was inspired to bring the story hurtling into the even starker realities of the 2013 corporate world – at the bottom rungs of which a savvy, wired youth culture is confronting a changing digital reality and tough economic times. Using the initial script by Barry L. Levy, director Robert Luketic and Milchan spent months developing a draft with Jason Hall, to expand on these themes.

Taking the role of Adam Cassidy is Liam Hemsworth, the Australian up-and-comer who recently garnered global attention playing Gale in the blockbuster The Hunger Games. The filmmakers saw in him all the qualities of both youthful, daring and hard-won integrity they were looking for in Adam. “He's gorgeous, charismatic and charming, but Liam is also very accessible,” says Producer Alexandra Milchan. Robert Luketic was equally impressed.

Harrison Ford was drawn not only to reuniting with Gary Oldman but to the rich themes of Paranoia. “I see it as a cautionary tale of a young man led by blind ambition into a trap.”

Joining Liam Hemsworth, Gary Oldman and Harrison Ford in Paranoia is a diverse supporting cast of both rising stars and veteran award winners including Amber Heard, Lucas Till, Embeth Davidtz, Julian McMahon, Josh Holloway and Richard Dreyfuss.
