Watch out guys, director Doug Liman is once again on a mission to “find the facts.” The Bourne Identity helmer has a new film entitled Fair Game with Naomi Watts and Sean Penn and it has conspiracy written all over it. This is a film where the words “top secret,” “cover up,” and “exposed” will be used more than once. After watching this trailer you’ll quickly learn that there’s nothing fair about this game (zing!). Take a look…
Fair Game is based on the actual events of a CIA Agent whose cover was blown to hell by greedy politicians and government officials. In the film Watts stars as Valerie Plame, a covert officer in the CIA’s Counter-Proliferation Division, who leads an investigation into the existence of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.
Valerie’s husband, diplomat Joe Wilson (Penn), is drawn into the investigation to substantiate an alleged sale of enriched uranium from Niger but when the administration ignores his findings and uses the issue to support the call to war everyone’s career and life is compromised.
Plame left the organization in 2005, and she and her husband filed a civil suit against former Vice-President Dick Cheney, Karl Rove, and Lewis “Scooter” Libby, after she was removed from the agency.
The film will debut in theaters in limited release on November 5th.
