- He has his hands full with studio-backed Edwin A. Salt about CIA officer (Angelina Jolie) who must prove her innocence, and he has got his fall already planned out with an FBI agent who is convicted for murder after an affair with an informer that threatened to destroy his career and marriage. Phillip Noyce has signed onto direct the book-to-screen adaptation of Above Suspicion -- a true crime thriller based on the book written by Joe Sharkey and scripted by Chris Gerolmo (the scribe behind Mississippi Burning).

Phillip Noyce Is Above Suspicion

10 November 2008 1:04 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Everyone remembers the story of the FBI agent who had an affair with an informant and then ran into trouble when she threatened to tell his wife and boss. Actually, I had never heard of the story of Mark Putnam and probably would have remained ignorant of him to this day if Phillip Noyce hadn't agreed to direct a movie about the events surrounding Putnam's affair called Above Suspicion. According to Hr, Noyce is going to direct the screenplay written by Mississippi Burning writer Chris Gerolmo. Gerolmo, in turn, based his script on a book by New York Times columnist Joe Sharkey. Sharkey, in turn, based his book on Putnam not being able to keep his gun in its holster, if you catch my drift, wink, wink. Putnam was a rookie agent when he started interrogating one of his informants in private. She ended up with child and that is »

Above Suspicion Adaptation to be Directed by Phillip Noyce

10 November 2008 1:42 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Bold Films (Bobby, Starship Troopers 3) has announced that its next feature film project will be an adaptation of New York Times columnist Joe Sharkey's true crime novel "Above Suspicion". Filmmaker Phillip Noyce, of Patriot Games, The Bone Collector, The Quiet American, and Catch a Fire most recently, will direct while Chris Gerolmo, of Mississippi Burning previously, will write the screenplay. The film centers on the true story of the only FBI agent to be convicted of murder - Mark Putnam. He was a dutiful family man and ambitious rookie agent, but everything took a turn for the worse when an affair with an informant threatened to destroy both his career and his marriage. Sounds like it might be intense. I'm not at all familiar with the book or the story, but apparently it's a bit different than most true crime novels. "You almost feel sorrier for the killer »

Random Roles: Tobin Bell

29 October 2008 9:03 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

The actor: Tobin Bell started in acting relatively late—he was 46 before his first big project, a small role in Mississippi Burning. His career is riddled with cop-types and bad guys, including a notable appearance as the Unabomber in a 1996 made-for-tv film. But his name didn't become synonymous with horror until he stepped into the Saw franchise's role of Jigsaw, a brilliant cancer patient/serial killer who creates elaborate traps for his victims, in the hopes that they'll gain a new appreciation for life—if they survive. Bell has signed on for six Saw movies, the fifth of which hits theaters this week. Mississippi Burning (1988)—"Agent Stokes" The A.V. Club: How did you get hooked up with the project? Tobin Bell: [Director] Alan Parker saw my headshot—and here's a good comment regarding having a good headshot: The more specific, the better. I don't know if »
