Liam Neeson is circling the lead role in Universal’s TELL NO ONE. Based on the crime book by Harlan Coben, the project centers on a doctor who is grieving for his dead wife when he discovers she may still be alive. The novel has already been adapted in France by filmmaker Guillaume Canet. Gavin O’Connor is in talks to join the project, which is being adapted by Chris Terrio.
In between his roles in thrillers like “Taken” and “Non-Stop,” Neeson has also had voice roles in “The Lego Movie” and “Nut Job,” as well as a role in Seth MacFarlane’s comedy western “A Million Ways to Die in the West.” Neeson has gone back to his roots, though, for the action/crime drama “A Walk Among the Tombstones,” which is set to premiere this weekend. Next up, Neeson has booked roles in J.A. Bayona’s drama “A Monster Calls,” and, of course, “Taken 3.”
Neeson is repped by CAA and Artist Rights Group.
