Liam Neeson and Jaume Collet- Serra team up again for the mystery thriller, THE COMMUTER from Lionsgate. This will mark the fourth film collaboration for the duo, they previously worked together on Unknown, Non-Stop, and Run All Night.
Neeson stars as an insurance salesman, who becomes apart of a criminal conspiracy when his daily commute takes an unexpected turn after a proposition from a mysterious stranger (Vera Farmiga). The family man is tasked with identifying a secret passenger in return for a quick chunk of cash, and soon finds himself in over his head.
After acquiring praise for his shark thriller The Shallows, Collet-Serra will direct Disney’s The Jungle Cruise starring Dwayne Johnson.
Liam Neeson recently announced he plans on calling it quits with action movies. While at TIFF promoting Mark Felt: The Man Who Brought Down the White House the actor stated “‘Guy’s I’m sixty-f–king-five.’ Audiences are eventually going to go, ‘Come on.’” So check out the trailer for what may potentially be one of Liam Neeson’s last action movies below.
The Commuter opens January 12.
