‘X-Men’ star Lucas Till to star with Liam Hemsworth in thriller ‘Paranoia’

Lucas Till exploded on the scene in last summer’s “X-Men: First Class” as Alex Summers aka Havok.

Variety says Till is about to join the espionage thriller “Paranoia”, which would cast him opposite “The Hunger Games” star Liam Hemsworth.  Director Robert Luketic (“Killers”, “The Ugly Truth”) will helm the project and famous actors Harrison Ford and/or Gary Oldman arein talks to join the cast as well.

At twenty-one, the actor’s resume already includes roles in “Battle: Los Angeles”, the Hanna Montana film and playing the young Johnny Cash in “Walk the Line.” Till’s Havok is expected to return in the sequel to “X-Men: First Class” which is scheduled to begin production in January.

The film, an adaptation of the Joseph Finder novel, is about rival telecom companies.

IMDB describes the film as “A boss blackmails one of his young employees to spy on a rival company.”

From Joseph Finder’s website, the synopsis of his novel, “Paranoia”:

Adam Cassidy is twenty-six and a low-level employee at a high-tech corporation who hates his job. When he manipulates the system to do something nice for a friend, he finds himself charged with a crime. Corporate Security gives him a choice: prison—or become a spy in the headquarters of their chief competitor, Trion Systems.

They train him. They feed him inside information. Now, at Trion, he’s a star, skyrocketing to the top. He finds he has talents he never knew he possessed. He’s rich, drives a Porsche, lives in a fabulous apartment, and works directly for the CEO. He’s dating the girl of his dreams.

His life is perfect. And all he has to do to keep it that way is betray everyone he cares about and everything he believes in.

But when he tries to break off from his controllers, he finds he’s in way over his head, trapped in a world in which nothing is as it seems and no one can really be trusted.

And then the real nightmare begins. . . .
