Liam Neeson will seek revenge in remake of In Order Of Disappearance
Liam Neeson is currently prepping for the Peter Landesman-directed Watergate thriller FELT, but the actor will be returning to the action genre for one of his upcoming films, as Deadline is reporting that Neeson will star in a remake of IN ORDER OF DISAPPEARANCE. Hans Petter Molland, who was behind the camera for the original the 2014 Norwegian movie, will helm the American version of the revenge flick, and he'll be directing from a script by Frank Baldwin.
Neeson will play "a snowplow driver who doesn’t get worked up about much, until his son is murdered and it is made to look like an overdose, by criminals involved in drug deals. It turns the mild-mannered man’s attention from snow to body removal and becomes a tense action thriller with Dirty Harry-esque intensity, where bad guys pile up like snow drifts when the killers suspect a rival gang."
According to the site, the remake is "being re-imagined to take place in a U.S. resort like Aspen with a different set of ethnic rivals than the Euro version, so Neeson’s character stays behind the wheel of the snow plow."
Neeson voices the titular monster in J.A. Bayona's A MONSTER CALLS (due out October 14, 2016), and he'll also appear in Martin Scorsese's SILENCE, which will likely be released sometime this November.
