Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones) starring in a new wild-looking movie that tells the true story of an FBI informant in Above Suspicion. She is starring in the movie with Jack Huston, Sophie Lowe, Johnny Knoxville, Thora Birch, and Austin Hébert. The story is based on the book, Above Suspicion: An Undercover FBI Agent, an Illicit Affair, and a Murder of Passion, by Joe Sharkey.
Nothing is more dangerous than someone with nothing to lose. Based on 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 is 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 is directed by Phillip Noyce, who is known for directing the Patriot Games, Clear and Present Danger, The Saint, The Bone Collector, and more. The screenplay was adapted by Chris Gerolmo, who wrote the dramatic thriller Mississippi Burning.
Above Suspicion will hit theaters this summer.
