Liam Neeson's Ride Home Goes Awry In The Upcoming Production, THE COMMUTER
Correct me if I'm wrong, though I am of the opinion that there is no stopping Liam Neeson. With films like Narco Sub, A Willing Patriot, Operation Cromite and upcoming action comedy, The Revenger, the last thing you'd expect would be any talk of retirement from doing action thriller roles, and those blurbs are out there. At any rate, there's obviously no going away for Neeson anytime soon, and especislly considering he's added another title to his current load as of Monday.
The Commuter is the name of The Picture Company's debut production with Studiocanal according to Deadline, reuniting producers Andrew Rona and Alex Heineman along with a script by Bryan Willinger and Phil de Blasi. The film, which begins shooting in New York City in early 2016, will perpetuate Neeson in the story of a businessman on his way home who gets entangled in a criminal conspiracy that endangers himself and everyone around him.
The listed names above all share space with Nesson in some capacity with recent credits like Jaume Collet-Serra's 2011 espionage flick, Unknown and last year's hijacking thriller Non-Stop. Perhaps this is a sign that Collet-Serra will return to the helm for another Neeson vehicle, though that's yet to be reported if true.
