HARD POWDER Sets The Tone For Molland's 'Kraftidioten' Remake Starring Liam Neeson
“Liam Neeson plays an ordinary man driven to extraordinary lengths, a hero in the mold of Clint Eastwood in ‘Unforgiven’ or Bruce Willis in ‘Die Hard,’” Studiocanal said in a statement.
Building off his performances in “Taken” and “Non-Stop,” Neeson will give “a slightly more modern spin” to his “Hard Powder” character, “a touch of wry humor, like Eastwood saying, ‘Make my day,’” said Ron Halpern, Studiocanal EVP international production and acquisitions.
He added: “Bringing a new perspective to the lone underdog character was what attracted Liam Neeson from the very beginning.”
Moland will aim for a “cool tone and classic archetypes,” in line with “Get Shorty” and “Out of Sight,” Halpern said.
