Neeson To Re-Team With Collet-Serra For THE COMMUTER
Are you ready for some more Liam Neeson action? Lionsgate has already set up The Picture Company's The Commuter since their acquisition last November from Studiocanal at the American Film Market, and judging by early reports, filming will soon begin in early 2016 if it hasn't already.
For this, we now bring the news from Deadline that Neeson will be rejoining director Jaume Collet-Serra, making this their fourth pairing since Unknown, Non-Stop and last year's Run All Night with co-star Alex Kinnaman. Principal photography will be set in New York City with Neeson starring as a businessman on his way home who gets entangled in a criminal conspiracy that endangers himself and everyone around him.
Producing are Andrew Rona and Alex Heineman along with a script by Bryan Willinger and Phil de Blasi. Neeson's calendar isn't quite empty either with expected appearances in Narco Sub, A Willing Patriot, Operation Cromite and upcoming action comedy, The Revenger, so watch this space for more updates.
Welp... it's been a less than ceremonious weekend for me. Being sick didn't help much for want of seeing Black Panther (guess who is avoiding Facebook to abstain from spoilers!), but it did give me a chance to do some important work for the site.
Ultimately, that includes introducing the week's entries for The Hit List now online and with none other than stuntwoman Tally Rodin getting our stunt playlist off to an explosive start. Following that are reels by Aidan Kennedy, Ronnie Shalvis, Nilo Ghajar-Williams, Thomas Lorber and a parkour jam sesh hosted by 3Run. Rounding it all out are Daniel Bodlák, Marco Falcone, Emily Tung, Jae Greene, Rebecca Ahn and Robin Calvo.
Making the trailer rounds this week we now have a look at an upcoming project over at the Lunar Stunts channel with Cabine Mortelle. Plot details are nil but the teaser itself is really all you need to figure it out as it somehow leads to some fantastic fight scenery among our cast listing Allen Quindiagan, Pa…
Making a film of any kind takes some seriously hard work, especially one that pushes boundaries. I've never been in an editing booth, although I can imagine the tediousness that comes with putting together a project that can be physically and mentally demanding on its face. Throw in the bread and butter of special visual effects and although your time is your own, you're ultimately on a whole other battlefield. It's an emotion that's understandable for want of being a creative and to be able to share it with audiences. After all you've been through in life until now and investing a heavy portion of your time and energy on a project like Black Lightning: Tobias's Revenge, actor and filmmaker Choice Skinner is more than qualified on the matter after winning Best Fan Film at the Urban Action Showcase and Expo last November.
"The team and I were honored to have been selected and screened at such a prestigious event." says Skinner before giving praise to the…
Actor and martial arts star Tiger Shroff is ready to follow up on the last five years he's spent making his foray into the indistry. The Munna Michael and Heropanti star is back and hitting harder and heavier these days with several projects in the making, and seemingly with an unmistakable effort to prove himself as India's answer to Rambo...
In at least one instance...literally, while seperately, we have the return of our star in Baaghi 2 following the 2016 hit film and readying a Spring release that sees Shroff back in action with the usual array of big kicks, explosive battles and stunts topped with Shroff's cinematic appeal. This, being the second of a trilogy in the works with Ahmed Khan following up on Sabbir Khan's work should service fans plentily from here on. A battle-hardened army officer goes in search of his ex-lover’s child who is mysteriously kidnapped. Neha reaches out to the only person who can help her with her plight, Ronnie. He goes deep into the un…
