Phillip Noyce above ‘Suspicion’

Bold Films signs director to true crime thriller

L.A.-based indie Bold Films has signed Phillip Noyce to direct its upcoming true crime thriller “Above Suspicion,” based on the book of the same title by New York Times columnist Joe Sharkey.

Chris Gerolmo (“Mississippi Burning”) pens the screenplay, which will track FBI agent Mark Putnam, convicted for murder after an affair with an informer that threatened to destroy his career and marriage.

“While providing the opportunity for compelling and richly drawn characters, the psychological twists and turns of ‘Above Suspicion’ have the power to keep an audience on the edge of their seats,” Noyce said in a statement.

Noyce next shoots Angelina Jolie starrer “Salt” for Sony.

“Suspicion” will be produced by Bold Films’ Michel Litvak, David Lancaster and Gary Michael Walters, along with Colleen Camp, Amy Adelson and Angela Amato. Bold’s Garrick Dion will serve as co-producer. Bold, which is handling international and domestic sales, said “Suspicion” is the first of a slate of films to be produced with thesp-turned-producer Camp.
