Joel Kinnaman Up For An All Nighter
He's in for the Liam Neeson thriller
Name change klaxon! No, we’re not announcing that the magazine and this site will now be known as Super Happy Fun Movie Times. The klaxon is blaring because Liam Neeson’s next thriller, Run All Nig**ht, is now called All Nighter**. It also has a new cast member aboard, as Joel Kinnaman is signed on to co-star.
All Nighter, which was originally written by Out Of The Furnace’s Brad Ingelsby, is just the latest collaboration between director Jaume Collet-Serra and Neeson, who worked together on Unknown and most recently reunited for air marshal thriller Non-Stop.
The new movie will see Neeson stepping to the other side of the law, playing an aging hit man who has to take on his brutal criminal boss in order to protect his family. Specifically, he has to save his estranged son (Kinnaman), who witnesses a murder while working as a chauffeur and must be eliminated.
Kinnaman has been spending time recently as the new future of law enforcement for the RoboCop remake, which will stomp on to our screens on February 7 next year. He’s also back in rainy Seattle (well, Canada, which plays Seattle) for the unexpected next season of The Killing, the US series adapted from the Danish original.
