Liam Neeson’s characters never seem to have a good time. They’re constantly having to track down kidnapped relatives, seek revenge, survive in the wilderness or take down all manner of threats. Things aren’t going to get more cheery for him in Non-Stop, which Variety reports Neeson has just signed up for.
Jeff Wadlow will direct from John Richardson and Chris Roach’s screenplay, which is set onboard an international flight and follows a weary air marshal (Liam Neeson) who has to spring into action to contain a threat while the plane is in the air.
Joel Silver is producing for Dark Castle Entertainment, and we’ll have to hope that’s a good omen, as the last time Liam Neeson, Warner Bros., and Dark Castle teamed up we got the entertaining thriller Unknown. It’s not certain when the film will start shooting.
