Jaume Collet-Serra had a big success with Unknown, but has had difficulty sorting out a follow-up, with his plans for a live-action Akira put on hold not long before it was due to go into production. Now it appears he’s hoping for an easier ride by getting back into the Liam Neeson business, with Variety reporting that he’s attached to direct Non-Stop.
Jeff Wadlow was set to direct, but he’s since moved on, presumably because he’s now set to helm Kick-Ass 2. John Richardson and Chris Roach’s screenplay 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.
It isn’t known when the film will start shooting.
