Nicolas Winding Refn Teams With Bond Writers, Liam Neeson is Jaume Collet-Serra’s ‘The Commuter,’ and More

1 February 2016 12:41 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

We’re still all awaiting Nicolas Winding Refn’s highly anticipated female-centric horror thriller The Neon Demon with bated breath, but he’s already gearing up for his next movie, which will reportedly have an Asian setting, and feature action and thriller elements. Details are skim, but it’s also been reported that Refn will be teaming up with the primary screenwriters of the last five James Bond films – Neal Purvis and Robert wade. Who knows? Maybe this could just be the ramp-up to an announcement that this will be the next Bond film, or it could be his long-rumored The Avenging Silence.

After last year’s frenetic Run All Night, star Liam Neeson and director Jaume Collet-Serra are already reuniting for another movie – their fourth collaboration. Collet-Serra will begin work on The Commuter, an action thriller following a businessman who becomes tangled in a criminal conspiracy on his daily commute, »

Liam Neeson's next action-thriller? An everyday commuter, who happens upon a sinister plan on his journey home...

Liam Neeson is reuniting with director Jaume Collet-Serra for a fourth project. They've already made Unknown, Non-Stop and Run All Night together, two of which have been sizeable hits, and the other - Run All Night - will eventually turn a profit.

Their fourth collaboration? That's set to be The Commuter, a suspense thriller about a businessman who's on his regular journey home, when he finds himself caught up in a criminal conspiracy. It sounds like the problem when you eavesdrop on other people's dastardly plans on your train journey home. Happens to us all the time.

Byron Willinger and Phil de Blasi have penned the script for this one, and it's set to be Collet-Serra's next project, once he's finished up the remaining work on his shark attack movie, »

Jaume Collet-Serra Will Make Liam Neeson Run All Night, Non-Stop, From Unknown Bad Guys In 'The Commuter'

29 January 2016 3:09 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Yes, I sort of recycled that headline, but this might be the last time I get to use it, at least until Liam Neeson does another on-the-run movie. But for now, he's reteaming with his best bud on this kinds of film, Jaume Collet-Serra, for yet another one. Read More: Liam Neeson Is Taken In By An Unknown, Non-Stop Conspiracy And Has To Run All Night In 'The Commuter' The duo, who previously teamed for "Run All Night," "Non-Stop," and "Unknown," will now pair up for "The Commuter." Byron Willinger and Phil de Blasi wrote the script for this tale of a businessman who finds his life, and those of his loved ones, threatened by a criminal conspiracy. Of course it is. I presume it won't be the authorities who set things right, but this own special set of skills that reign down justice on the bad guys. »

Liam Neeson Reunites with 'Non-Stop' Director for 'The Commuter'

29 January 2016 1:54 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just a few months after Liam Neeson signed on to star in StudioCanal's The Commuter, it seems the actor is reuniting with his regular collaborator behind the camera. Deadline reports that Jaume Collet-Serra has come aboard to direct The Commuter. This will be the fourth project the actor and director have collaborated on, following Unknown, Non-Stop and last year's Run All Night.

Byron Willinger and Philip de Blasi wrote the screenplay, which follows a businessman (Liam Neeson) who unwillingly gets embroiled in a criminal conspiracy during his daily commute home. This sinister plot not only endangers his life, but also the lives of several other commuters around him. We first reported on The Commuter way back in 2010, when Olatunde Osunsanmi (The Fourth Kind) signed on to direct, but that was the last we heard about the project.

Jaume Collet-Serra will executive produce with his Ombra Films partner Juan Sola. Andrew Rona »

Action Vehicle The Commuter Pairs Director Jaume Collet-Serra With Liam Neeson Once More

29 January 2016 11:41 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Together they’ve tackled psychological thrillers and airborne white-knuckle rides, but now Lionsgate and StudioCanal’s latest action flick The Commuter will make it four for four with Jaume Collet-Serra and Liam Neeson collaborations.

News of Collet-Serra boarding the project arrives by way of Deadline, noting that the filmmaker previously directed the grizzled Irishman in UnknownNon-Stop and last year’s gritty noir Run All Night. Hardly genre-defining classics by any stretch, but it’s clear Collet-Serra and Neeson have forged a bankable formula together in the past few years, and it’s that recipe for success Lionsgate and StudioCanal will be hoping to call upon once more for The Commuter.

Scripted by Byron Willinger and Phil de Blasi, Neeson’s latest action role has him take on the titular character, an unassuming businessman who unearths a seedy criminal conspiracy theory after clocking out of his nine-to-five. Said to be »

Liam Neeson's Next Thriller Sounds An Awful Lot Like His Last Few Thrillers

29 January 2016 10:45 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Great news for Liam Neeson fans. He going to star in a new movie where he.s going to be unwittingly caught up in a conspiracy that threatens the lives of himself and the people he loves. Doesn.t that sound like an amazing premise? What.s wrong? You don.t look impressed. Ok, we admit, it sounds an awful lot like one or two... or six, of his other most-recent films. This one is different though, it.s going to take place during an incredibly exciting time period. The afternoon commute. Nevermind. The Commuter will be the next film from the team of Liam Neeson and director Jaume Collet-Serra. The two previously worked together on a couple of Neeson.s other action thrillers, Non-Stop and Unknown. It will be Serra.s next film as director which likely means we.ll see it sooner rather than later. The plot synopsis »

10 Best Action Scenes Of 2015

25 January 2016 7:31 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Universal/Warner Bros./Fox/MGM

Make no mistake about it, 2015 was a great year for blockbuster cinema. While Jupiter Ascending, Fifty Shades of Grey and Terminator Genisys may have been terrible, big-budget studio filmmaking still enjoyed a banner year thanks to the likes of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Furious 7, Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, Kingsman: The Secret Service and Mad Max: Fury Road to name but five.

Looking back, it would even be fair to say that last year was one of the best ever when it came to the sheer volume of spectacular action scenes that Hollywood’s blockbuster behemoths delivered, even when the rest of the movie itself wasn’t quite up to scratch. Movies like Spectre, Jurassic World and San Andreas are hardly going to be remembered as all-time classics in the future, but each served up plenty of eye-popping set-pieces. However, the less said about »

The Search For A Jurassic World 2 Director Is Now Underway – Who Is The Frontrunner?

20 January 2016 8:20 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Universal Pictures

The self-assured rumblings coming from Deadline are saying that the sequel to Jurassic World is well underway with its pre-production (no surprises there, considering the $1.6 billion haul for World). A script has been written by outgoing director Colin Trevorrow (off to begin the lengthy production of Star Wars Episode IX), and a slow but steady search for the right director is now underway.

They also report that producer Frank Marshall and some other folks at Universal have strong personal ties with director J.A. Bayona (The Impossible, The Orphanage) and that there have been discussions with the critically-acclaimed director. Is he a frontrunner to take on the dino reboot-sequel?

The departure of Trevorrow from the helm could be a blessing in disguise as there was something slightly clinical and overly-glossy about Jurassic World; a director with the dark verve of Bayona could be a shot in the arm that the franchise needs not financially, »

Top 100 Most Anticipated Foreign Films of 2016: #7. Juan Antonio Bayona’s A Monster Calls

14 January 2016 9:00 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

A Monster Calls

Director: J.A. Bayona

Writer: Patrick Ness

Spanish director Juan Antonio Bayona adapts Patrick Ness’ celebrated children’s book A Monster Calls for his third feature. Ness re-worked the story for the screen in this Us-Spanish co-production from Bayona, whose previous films were the Guillermo Del Toro executive produced The Orphanage (2007) and Oscar nominated The Impossible (2012). The tale concerns a 13 year old boy who suffers a recurring nightmare every night since his mother fell ill. In response to the child’s plight, a tree from the garden outside transforms itself into a monster and visits the boy. A teaser trailer dropped in November, and several stills were released in Spain, with principal photography having finished much earlier in 2015. Liam Neeson stars as the tree monster, and it seems the considerable special effects required explain the prolonged post-production period. Bayona tapped Sigourney Weaver to play newcomer Lewis MacDougall’s »

This is what it's like to be the man behind Jar Jar Binks

13 January 2016 9:15 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It's not easy being semi-responsible for one of the most despised movie characters of all time, but Ahmed Best, who brought Jar Jar Binks to life in the "Star Wars" prequels and cemented his place in film infamy, seems to have taken it in stride. Best was interviewed by British journalist Jamie Stangroom for Stangroom's YouTube series where he talks to some lesser-known actors from the "Star Wars" franchise. Best says he was performing in "Stomp" when he was cast as Jar Jar. Initially, he was just the motion capture actor, but George Lucas ended up using his voice for the part as well. Best didn't expect the character to be so reviled (who would?) and admits that it was "painful" and he took it "a little bit" personally. "You put a lot of your own personality into it and you get emotionally and personally invested in the work that you do, »
