Emilia Clarke and Jack Huston have been cast to star in the thriller Above Suspicion!
“Game of Thrones” star Emilia Clarke and “Ben-Hur” actor Jack Huston are set to topline Phillip Noyce’s thriller “Above Suspicion.”
Chris Gerolmo will adapt the book of the same name written by New York Times columnist Joe Sharkey. “Above Suspicion” is the chilling true story of a newly married FBI poster boy assigned to an Appalachian mountain town in Kentucky. There he is drawn into an illicit affair with an impoverished local woman who becomes his star informant. She sees in him her means of escape; instead, it’s a ticket to disaster for both of them. This scandal shook the foundations of the nation’s top law enforcement agency, ending in the first ever conviction of an FBI agent for murder.
The film will be produced by Colleen Camp for Colleen Camp Productions, and produced and financed by Mohamed AlRafi and Tim Degraye. Also producing are Emmy-nominated writer Angela Amato-Velez and Amy Adelson. Principal photography is slated to begin later this month.
