Liam Neeson, Joel Kinnaman and Ed Harris are already attached to join in Run All Night and now they’ve got some company as rapper and actor Common is in negotiations to star in the Warner Bros. action-thriller, according to THR.
The movie is about an aging assassin who takes on his former mafia boss (Ed Harris) to protect his estranged son (Joel Kinnaman), a limo driver who witnessed a murder. Common is set to be the mob leader’s most trusted hitman, an emotionless killer who lets nothing stand in his way of completing the task at hand.
Jaume Collet-Serra (Unknown, Non-Stop – both of which also starred Neeson) is directing from a screenplay by Brad Ingelsby (Out of the Furnace). It isn’t known when production may begin.
