ABOVE SUSPICION: Thora Birch And Johnny Knoxville Cast In Thriller

Johnny Knoxville Thora Birch

Thora Birch and Johnny Knoxville join the cast of Above Suspicion. The two actors will appear in the upcoming Philip Noyce film based on the Joe Sharkey book of the same name.

The movie marks the third time Birch has worked with Noyce. Previously, she appeared in his films Patriot Games and Clear and Present Danger when she was still a child. Having since acted in such films as Dungeons and Dragons and Ghost World, Birch is reuniting with the director a little over twenty years since she last worked with him:

Colleen Camp is producing for Colleen Camp Productions, with Mohamed AlRafi and Tim Degraye producing and financing. Angela Amato-Velez and Amy Adelson also are aboard as producers.

Chris Gerolmo adapted the true story of a newly married FBI poster boy assigned to an Appalachian mountain town in Kentucky where he is drawn into an illicit affair with an impoverished local woman who becomes his star informant.

“It was 23 years in the making. I had done a play with Jack Huston in London, Strangers on a Train with Barbara Broccoli and Tim Degraye, and I asked Jack to do this and he said yes,” said producer Camp who put all the pieces together. She is currently on set in Kentucky. “We are shooting in Kentucky and we hope this opens up a lot of business here because it’s a fantastic place to shoot and there is nothing like the Appalachian mountains.”

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former UCLARadio.com disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for HonorSociety.org to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
