Director Phillip Noyce known for movies like Dead Calm, Clear and Present Danger, Patriot Games, and The Bone Collector. Now he is coming back with Above Suspicion, a new thriller that has Jack Huston (Ben-Hur, Boardwalk Empire) and Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones, Terminator Genisys) on board to star.
Based on the 1993 book by author Joe Sharkey, the movie will tell the 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.
