Unknown wasn’t as strong as Taken, but it was stupid, goofy fun that served as a platform for Liam Neeson to act like a badass in. Writers Oliver Butcher and Stephen Cornwell have another action script that’s coming together, and Vin Diesel is going take the lead role.
The action-thriller has neither a title nor a logline, but Variety confirms that a first step has been taken with the Diesel casting. The actor’s One Race Productions will team with the newly established Ink Factory to produce, and the project is said to be on the fast-track.
Not much more to say than that at this point. The two writers are working on a film adaptation of Warren Ellis’ Gravel for Legendary Pictures. Diesel is having a good year, with a new Riddick movie seemingly happening and a strong showing for the April release Fast Five. I’ll see the dude in anything, especially when “action” is some component of the genre.
