Liam Neeson is adding yet another crime thriller to his resume. The Wrap reports that the Taken actor is currently in negotiations to topline the thriller The All Nighter (aka Run All Night). Should he sign on, Neeson would play “an aging hit man who, in order to protect his wife and son, must take on his former boss in a single night.” He then finds himself on the run from the mob with his estranged son in tow. The story isn’t exactly a Taken ripoff, but I’d be lying if I said I wouldn’t like to see Neeson branch out more (he was fantastic in The Grey).
It appears that the project is currently without a director, but Brad Ingelsby’s spec script was acquired early this year for a large sum. Neeson is currently filming a role in Crash director Paul Haggis’ ensemble drama Third Person, after which he’ll reteam with Unknown director Jaume Collet-Serra for the airplane thriller Non-Stop. He’s also set to star in Scott Frank’s actioner A Walk Among the Tombstones and he recently committed to voicing a role in the animated feature Lego: Piece of Resistance.
