Mira Sorvino Joins The Cast Of AT&T’s Planned Condor Series
Drawing from the similarly-named 1975 Sydney Pollack thriller Three Days of the Condor, the series will revolve around naive young CIA analyst Joe Turner and what happens when he uncovers a devious plan that could result in the death of millions of innocent people. Coming out shortly after the Watergate scandal, the film proved to be emblematic of the paranoia and distrust towards the government that came to define the 70’s.
While Max Irons is slated to play Turner, Sorvino will appear as one Marty Frost, a veteran investigator who only becomes involved after Joe’s office is ransacked. As of now, the series is set to have ten episodes for its first season.
Deadline, the source of this story, shares the following about the production and the movie which it is based upon:
Adapted from James Grady’s novel Six Days of the Condor and produced by Dino de Laurentiis, the 1975 film starred Robert Redford as a thoughtful CIA analyst thrown into a murderous conspiracy in which he tried to avoid being killed as his colleagues were picked off around him. Faye Dunaway co-starred.
Smilovic, who serves as showrunner, and Katzberg executive produce alongside David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Marcy Ross.
