Presumed Castable

Harrison Ford has nabbed the choice lead in Mirage/Warner Bros' "Presumed Innocent," to film in July for director Alan Pakula. The thriller, based on Scott Turow's bestseller and adapted by Oscar-winner Frank Pierson, concerns an investigator for the district attorney's office who is assigned to look into the murder of his former mistress.

Originally optioned by Sydney Pollack and Mark Rosenberg (as producers) for a reported $1 million at United Artists, the project was subsequently sold to Warners last summer.

Negotiations are under way for Brian Dennehy to play Ford's boss, who--like Ford's character--figures in the unraveling mystery.
