Here’s the thing: Liam Neeson is basically starring in the same movies over and over. He’s a living action figure, where you just change his accessories and he can go from air marshall to former CIA agent to hitman, like the one he plays in the first trailer for ‘Run All Night.’ The basic Liam Neeson action figure comes with a leather jacket and a gun, but you can give him different badges, a cell phone, or upgrade his weapons and boom, it’s a whole new story. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, but we should all acknowledge it. Go ahead. Try saying it out loud. Feels great.
The last we heard about the attempted remake of 'Akira' was that the film stalled out in development, with Jaume Collet-Serra leaving the project because of budget disputes, and with Garret Hedlund attached to star, but things have mostly been quiet for the last year. Well, the project is back on and Collet-Serra is in talks to return to the director's chair.
Director Jaume Collet-Serra wants to re-team with his 'Unknown' star Liam Neeson for the latest thriller for Dark Castle Productions, titled 'Non-Stop.'
