Liam Neeson is adding yet another crime thriller to his slate of upcoming projects. The actor is attached to star in a remake of the 2011 French crime thriller A Gang Story, per Deadline. Safe House director Daniel Espinosa is attached to direct the Thunder Road production with a script by David Scarpa (Daredevil reboot). The original film centers on a former organized crime member who, as he nears the age of 60, is trying to put his crime life behind him and tend to his wife, children, and grandchildren. The tables are turned when his former cohort—who has done nothing to give up the crime life—comes back into the picture.
There’s no word on when production might begin, and Neeson and Espinosa both have very crowded dance cards at the moment. Neeson next shoots Seth MacFarlane’s comedy A Million Ways to Die in the West and is also attached to star in Run All Night and is being eyed for the depression-era drama Highwaymen, while Espinosa is gearing up to helm the thriller Child 44 and is attached to the Yakuza film The Outsider and the John Grisham adaptation The Racketeer.
