You would think that anyone dealing in the criminal world of kidnapping would know to avoid tangling with Liam Neeson. But clearly the crooks in Scott Frank’s A Walk Among The Tombstones have never seen a** Taken** film. Have a gander at the trailer over at Apple.

Written and directed by Scott Frank, and based on Lawrence Block’s bestselling mystery novels, the thriller finds Neeson as Matt Scudder, a former NYPD cop who quit the job after a robbery at his local bar cost lives. Now he works as a grungy, unlicensed private eye, taking on cases for anyone willing to “gift” him the readies.

When he reluctantly agrees to help a drug trafficker (Downton Abbey’s Dan Stevens, about as far from the period drama as he could hope to be, short of heading into space) find the men who kidnapped and brutally murdered his wife, he discovers that this is not the first ransom case that has gone badly with these particular criminals. And this latest kidnapping will not be the last… Digging into the gang’s associates, Scudder soon learns that this might be his most dangerous assignment yet.

Neeson certainly knows how to handle this sort of gruff, enigmatic warrior, though Scudder is definitely not Bryan Mills. Frank is the man who brought us the screenplay for Out Of Sight, and his underrated directorial debut was The Lookout, so we definitely have our hopes for this one. A Walk Among The Tombstones is out on September 19.
