In recent memory, Liam Neeson has taken the action/thriller genre by storm, working non-stop. Now, we’re happy to report that the 63-year-old action star has already picked out his next vehicle, the suspense-thriller THE COMMUTER. Scripted by Byron Willinger and Phillip De Blasi, the pic will follow Neeson as an unassuming New York City businessman who becomes roped into a criminal conspiracy.
StudioCanal is financing, while newly formed The Picture Company will produce. Andrew Rona and Alex Heineman will produce for The Picture Co. That group worked with Neeson previously on his thrillers Non-Stop and Unknown. Production is tentatively set for a spring start, in New York City.
Neeson most recently wrapped on Martin Scorsese’s drama Silence, as well as the Felicity Jones/Toby Kebbell-led children’s fantasy A Monster Calls. The incredibly busy thespian is next working on the action/comedy The Revenger, Open Road’s thriller A Willing Patriot, and Gavin O’Connor’s Tell No One remake at Warner Bros.
