Phillip Boyce (Patriot Games, The Quiet American) has signed on to direct Above Suspicion, an adaptation of the book written by New York Times columnist Joe Sharkey. Chris Gerolmo (Mississippi Burning) will write the screenplay. The film centers on the true story of the only FBI agent to be convicted of murder. Mark Putnam was a dutiful family man and ambitious rookie agent who embarks on a dangerous affair with an informant. When the affair threatens to unravel his career and marriage, it takes a turn for the worse. The indie finance and production company Bold Films is behind the film with Michel Litvak (Bobby), Gary Michael Waters (Mini's First Time) and David Lancaster (A Love Song for Bobby Long) on board to produce. Filming is tentatively scheduled to begin fall 2009. Noyce is also directing the espionage thriller Salt, which will star Angelina Jolie.
