Liam Neeson won’t let anyone take his son in the mob drama “Run All Night”, in which he’ll play an “aging hitman who is forced to take on his brutal former boss to protect his estranged son and his family.”
Seriously, people need to really stop trying to take Liam Neeson’s family from him. It never ends well. (For the people trying to take his family away, that is. It usually ends pretty swell for ol Liam in these movies, though.)
Joel Kinnaman (soon to be seen in the upcoming “Robocop” remake) will play Neeson’s son, who goes on the run with the help of pops when, while working as a chauffeur, he witnesses a murder and is scheduled to be eliminated by the bad guys as a reslt.
Kinnaman is probably most known to TV audiences as one of the main cops in AMC’s “The Killing” TV series, and he recently co-starred in the sci-fi actioner “The Darkest Hour”, though that was such an awful movie he might not want you to remember that little detour in an otherwise blossoming Hollywood career.
“Run All Night” will be directed by Jaume Collet-Serra, who made his bones on the indie hit “Orphan”, before directing Neeson in the actioner “Unknown”. Collet-Serra liked working with Neeson so much (and vice versa, apparently) the two teamed up once again for “Non-Stop”, and will now make “Run All Night” their third movie together in a row.
Based on a script by Brad Ingelsby, “Run All Night” will start running sometime this Fall.
