Liam Neeson To Bring The War To The Cartel In THE MINUTEMAN
Far from any talk of retirement, actor Liam Neeson is back for another action role in The Minuteman which rolls cameras this September. Directed by Robert Lorenz, Neeson will play a retired Vietnam veteran who finds himself caring for a young boy being hunted by the cartel.
The Minuteman, which Altitude Sales is taking to Cannes next week for buyers, marks the latest update for Neeson who faced a mix of criticisms from the public during PR for his thriller, Cold Pursuit, over his actions and bygone mindset from close to four decades ago. Effectively it placee the subject of racism front and center in the mainstream and of course, people had their opinions and, well, I have mine.
Lorenz will directs from a script he wrote with Chris Charles and Danny Kravitz. Tai Duncan and Mark Williams will produce for Zero Gravity Management nest to, alongside Sculptor Media’s Warren Goz and Eric Gold. Exec producers are James Masciello for Raven Capital, and Jonathan Decker and Voltage CEO Nicolas Chartier. (VARIETY)
