Brendan Fraser Joins “Condor” Remake

Brendan Fraser has been cast opposite Max Irons and Mira Sorvino in “Condor,” the ten episode drama series adaptation of both Sydney Pollack’s 1975 political thriller “Three Days of the Condor” and the original novel upon which it’s based.

The story follows Joe Turner (Irons), a young CIA analyst whose idealism is tested when he stumbles onto a terrible but brilliant plan that threatens the lives of millions.

Fraser will play Nathan Fowler, an unstable yet efficient central cog in an unholy alliance between the private military company that employs him and the CIA. He’s motivated by his hatred of radical Islam, and seeking the approval of his war-hero father, but he’s also redeemed by his fierce love for his daughter.

Jason Smilovic and Todd Katzberg are penning and MGM Television and Skydance TV are producing the series for AT&T Audience Network.
