While not quite as Daniel Day Lewis dining as Lincoln in a contemporary restaurant, it’s the first look at Gary Oldman and Harrison Ford from Robert Luketic’s thriller Paranoia.  The duo were also coming from dinner.

The film stars Liam Hemsworth as a young technologist working for large telecom corporation who gets blackmailed by the CEO (Gary Oldman) to go work for his competitor’s corporation and spy on their research.  The competitor’s corporation just happens to be run by Oldman’s former mentor, played by Harrison Ford.

Hit the jump to check out the photo and Ford’s new look.

 

It isn’t an official image or even a set photo, but the photo, courtesy of Coming Soon, features Oldman looking his usual self and Ford sporting a completely cropped, almost shaved head.  I don’t think Ford has worn his hair this short in his career.  The shortest it’s been was in Presumed Innocent.  The pair were out dining in Philadelphia where the movie is currently filming.

Robert Luketic previously directed 21, Legally Blonde, and The Ugly Truth.  The film also stars Amber Heard, Lost‘s Josh Holloway, and Richard Dreyfuss.  Ford and Oldman previously worked together in 1997′s Air Force One.

Here’s the synopsis:

In this high-stakes thriller, Adam Cassidy (Liam Hemsworth) is an ambitious junior technologist trying to climb the ranks of telecom giant Wyatt Corporation. But after one costly mistake, Adam is blackmailed by ruthless CEO Nicholas Wyatt (Gary Oldman) to turn corporate spy by going to work for the firm’s top competitor, which is run by Wyatt’s old mentor, Jock Goddard (Harrison Ford). Adam soon finds himself delivered into prepackaged success, living his fantasy life of old-world boardrooms, private clubs, exotic cars, and all the spoils of Manhattan bachelorhood.  However, behind the scenes, he is merely a pawn in Wyatt’s power play, and must search for a way out from under his boss, who will stop at nothing, even murder, to gain a multi-billion dollar advantage.
