Liam Neeson to Star in Universal's 'The Revenger'

Universal Pictures has landed the pitch for an action-comedy titled "The Revenger," and while no official logline or synopsis has been revealed, from the title and the genre we assume the film likely parodies the style of action films usually starring Liam Neeson -- which makes the fact that Neeson is attached to star even better.

According to Variety, the pitch comes from the duo of Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant, the team behind such films as the "Night at the Museum" franchise, the Vin Diesel-led family film "The Pacifier" and Comedy Central'S "Reno 911."

Ruben Fleischer ("Zombieland," "Gangster Squad") is set to direct.
