Mira Sorvino to Star in Audience Network's 'Three Days of the Condor' Remake
Mira Sorvino is making the move to Audience Network.
The Oscar winner has joined the network's Three Days of the Condor remake, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. Additionally, Lawrence Trilling (Parenthood, Alias) has signed on to direct and executive produce.
Titled simply Condor, the drama follows Joe Turner (Max Irons), a young CIA analyst whose idealism is tested when he stumbles onto a terrible but brilliant plan that threatens the lives of millions. Sorvino will play Marty Frost, an investigator who has come out of retirement to take over after an attack at Turner’s office.
Trilling will direct the first three episodes of the series, which was adapted by writers Jason Smilovic and Todd Katzberg. Smilovic will serve as showrunner and exec produce with Katzberg, David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Marcy Ross. MGM Television and Skydance Television will produce Condor, which was developed in association with Paramount TV.
Based on James Grady's original book Six Days of the Condor, 1975's Three Days of the Condor hailed from director Sydney Pollack and starred Robert Redford and Faye Dunaway. The film grossed more than $41 million.
This marks Sorvino's second series-regular role, following BBC's Intruders. Her other credits include recurring roles on Stalker, Falling Skies and Psych, and films such as Romy and Michele's High School Reunion and Mighty Aphrodite, for which she won an Oscar in 1996. She is repped by APA and Management 360.
Trilling, who also serves as an exec producer and director on Amazon's recently renewed legal drama Goliath, is repped by CAA and attorney Karl Austen.
