Liam Neeson Up For The All Nighter
He's in negotiations to be a hit man

Liam Neeson, Taken 2

Continuing his current career as Go-To Older Action Man With Family Issues And/Or Wolves, Liam Neeson is now in negotiations to tackle crime thriller The All Nighter (which has also been called Run All Night), according to The Wrap.

While that first title makes it sound like he’s taking on a Hangover-style comedy, it’s actually the tale of an aging hit man who goes up against his former mob employers in one blood-soaked night. Looking to protect his estranged family, he then has to go on the run from the gangsters’ retaliation as well as the authorities.

The film has been in development for nearly a year now, ever since Warner Bros. bought Out Of The Furnace writer Brad Ingelsby’s script. There’s no sign of a director on board yet, so this one will likely linger in limbo for a little longer.

Neeson, however will next appear in Paul Haggis’ drama The Third Person, airplane action thriller Non-Stop and animated ‘toon Lego: The Piece Of Resistance.

just another nasty, tacky little beat em up
i hated Taken - xenophobic bit of trash masquerading as a thriller. there are others like it (that Paris crap thing with travolta) but Taken did so much business it was tragic. it's like Neeson missed out on Lincoln and then went a bit mental and started killing stuff (just on screen obviously). he needs a proper job More

Liam's gone to the Dogs...
It's a real shame that an actor of Neesons capability seems to find himself in some awful films of late. This also just looks like crap B- movie style fodder that offers NOTHING new. Can someone answer this... What was the last great film that Neeson did? More
