Liam Neeson Up For Non-Stop
He may be an air marshal

Liam Neeson Up For Non-Stop

We know he can rescue wayward daughters from fiendish Euro-kidnappers. We know he can track down his true identity despite amnesia. We know he can punch wolves. But will any of those skills serve Liam Neeson well on board a plane? Maybe if it were being threatened by identity-stealing Euro-wolves… Anyhoo, he’s now in negotiations to take the lead for airborne thriller Non-Stop.

The job would reunite him with Joel Silver, who produced Unknown with his Dark Castle company, which saw Neeson in his increasingly familiar action mode.

Non-Stop, which the company picked up from writers Chris Roach and John Richardson last August with Jeff Wadlow attached to direct, would find Neeson as a tired, stressed air marshal whose otherwise peaceful flight is interrupted by nasty threat. Variety hasn’t determined what that problem is exactly, but it’s probably not snakes.

Neeson can be seen right now as Zeus in Wrath Of The Titans and next crops up in Battleship. Oh, and he’s just finished putting his particular skill set to use once more for Taken 2.
