Heat Vision reports that Kinnaman is nearing a deal to play Neeson’s character’s son in Run All Night. The plot centers on an aging hitman (Neeson) who, in order to protect his wife and son (Kinnaman), must take on his former boss in a single night. He then finds himself on the run from the mob and authorities with his estranged son in tow. Kinnaman’s character is also a chauffeur who witnesses a murder and is therefore marked for elimination. Run All Night began as a spec script by Brad Inglesby (Out of the Furnace) and looks to start production this fall.
Variety reports that Frecheville has joined Roskam’s Animal Rescue, which stars Hardy as Hardy as a criminal attempting to reform his ways when he gets caught up in a heist gone wrong and a murder, all resulting from a lost and contested pit bull. Rapace stars as Nadia, a scarred woman who lives near where Hardy’s character finds a wounded puppy. Frecheville will play a small-time criminal.
