BEST BETS: "Jessica Jones," "Big Trouble/Escape from New York" & More October 2016 Highlights
Liam Neeson will continue his “Not Too Old To Kick Ass” initiative with a Warner Bros. film called Run All Night (a.k.a. The All Nighter). He’d been in talks to star as a hit man who has to protect his family and take down his former boss all in one night, but Deadline reports he’s officially signed on now.
With Neeson set, Warner Bros. has turned its efforts toward nailing down a director. The studio is talking to Jaume Collet-Sera, who directed the star in the psychological thriller Unknown. The two are now filming Non-Stop, which finds the actor playing an air marshal trying to foil a hijacking.
The Run All Night script was penned by Brad Ingelsby, who wrote the remake of The Raid, as well as Point Blank, which is set to star Mark Wahlberg.
