The drama follows a young boy who loses himself in an imaginative world he creates full of monsters and fairies to deal with bullies at school and his mother’s illness. No word yet on what role Neeson will play but he will star alongside Felicity Jones.
Neeson is the prolific actor known for his roles in “Schindler’s List,” “Kinsey,” and “Love Actually.” Recently, he’s been turning toward more action roles including “Taken,” “Non-Stop” and “The Grey.” His upcoming projects include Seth MacFarlane’s “A Million Ways to Die in the West,” Martin Scorsese’s “Silence” and Universal’s crime/drama “A Walk Among the Tombstones” where he’ll star with Dan Stevens.
Neeson is repped by CAA.
