Joel Kinnaman’s stars should rise significantly this summer when The Killing actor takes on the title role in the remake of Robocop. Now he’s planning a follow-up, with THR reporting that he’s in final talks to star in the Warner Bros. thriller Run All Night, starring opposite Liam Neeson.
The movie is about a hitman (Neeson) who must take out his former mafia boss in order to protect his family. Kinnaman is up to play the assassin’s estranged son, a chauffeur who witnesses a murder, which puts his life in danger and results in Neeson needing to take on his old boss.
Jaume Collet-Serra is set to direct from a screenplay by Brad Ingelsby (Out of the Furnace).
