Liam Neeson Boards 'The Commuter'

Although Liam Neeson has teased his retirement from action movies, the 63-year-old star certainly isn't showing any signs of slowing down.

Mere days after news surfaced that he'll star in "The Revenger," an action-comedy from Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant, Deadline reports Neeson has signed on to StudioCanal's suspense thriller "The Commuter."

The film sounds significantly more exciting than its title suggests: Neeson will play a businessman who, on his daily commute home, is unwittingly caught up on a criminal conspiracy that threatens not only his life but those of the people around him.

"The Commuter" is written by Byron Willinger and Phil de Blasi, who penned "Skyscrapers" for Universal Pictures and "The Crossing" for Screen Gems. No director is attached, but the project is expected to begin production in the spring in New York.
