Phillip Noyce (Salt) will helm from Chris Gerolmo’s (Mississippi Burning) screenplay adaptation of Joe Sharkey’s 1993 book detailing the tragic true-to-life story of an FBI rookie agent (Huston) who gets involved with a seductive troubled informant (Clarke) and winds up killing her. Colleen Camp (American Rhapsody) is producing.
Clarke will be starring opposite Sam Claflin (The Huntsman: Winter’s War) in this summer’s Me Before You, which centers on a woman who takes care of a recently-paralyzed man and the romance that ensues. Huston has just completed filming of Ben-Hur in which he stars in the title role; the film is set to open August 19th.
Above Suspicion starts shooting May 23, with plans to launch international sales at next year’s Cannes Film Festival.
