After the worldwide success of the Taken franchise, every producer wants a piece of Liam Neeson. Now comes word via The Wrap that Warner Bros. is close to making that happen by getting Neeson on-board for an action-thriller The All Nighter (a.k.a. Run All Night).
The spec script penned by Brad Ingelsby was being acquired by WB in January for a reported six figure sum. Ingelsby also contributed to Out of the Furnace, the upcoming film from Crazy Heart director Scott Cooper.
The story reportedly follows ‘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 winds up on the run from the mob and the authorities with his estranged son.’
The Taken-esque premise is no doubt tailor-made to fit his chest.
