Phillip Noyce To Direct Above Suspicion
About an FBI agent jailed for murder

11 November 2008  |  Written by Chris Hewitt

While he’s waiting for the script of Edwin A. Salt to be retooled for Angelina Jolie (Edwina A. Salt, anyone?), Phillip Noyce has added another film to his to-do list.

The Australian director has lined up Above Suspicion, a true-life drama about the only FBI agent to ever be convicted of murder. (And not, as we first thought, a remake of the 1943 Joan Crawford/Fred MacMurray flick, nor the 1995 Christopher Reeve movie, co-written by William H. Macy – FACT!)

This Above Suspicion is based on the book by New York Times columnist Joe Sharkey, which concerned rookie agent Mark Putnam. A family man, Putnam embarked on an affair with an informant – when that began to unravel and threaten his job and family, things took a dramatic turn for the worse.

Noyce will direct the film, from a script by Chris Gerolmo. Bold Films is stumping up the readies.
