Mira Sorvino Joins The Cast Of AT&T’s Planned Condor Series

Academy Award-winning Mighty Aphrodite actress Mira Sorvino is set to play a role in AT&T Audience Network‘s upcoming political drama Condor.

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.

About the author

Reggie Peralta

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.
