Deadline is reporting that Jack Huston (Ben-Hur) and Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones) have signed on to appear in Above Suspicion, an adaptation of Joe Sharkey’s non-fiction book of the same name.
The project, which is being directed by Phillip Noyce (The Giver) from a script by Chris Gerolmo (Mississippi Burning), tells 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.”
