Liam Neeson is set to reunite with Irish film director Neil Jordan to make a new horse-training drama called The Trainer.

The Ballymena man is set to star as John Moore, a premier horse trainer in the west of Ireland who, beset by tragedy, loses everything he cherishes and almost forgets to live.

Into his life comes a teenage refugee called Nadya, who has fled her own horrors and who now finds herself in a completely new world.

They share a love for racehorse Allabelle, who is about to prove that they may all have one race left inside of them.

Neeson and Jordan previously worked together on Michael Collins and Breakfast On Pluto.
