Liam Neeson to return to 'revenge' role in Norwegian thriller remake
Liam Neeson is reported to have landed the lead role of a remake of the hit Norwegian movie In Order of Disappearance.
The Ballymena-born actor will take on the role of avenging father out to find out why his son was murdered by a drugs gang, according to Deadline website.
Watch here for a feel of the original movie:
He will appear in the role originally played by Swedish actor Stellan Skarsgard, who starred in the BBC One crime drama River last year.
Unlike his famous role of ex CIA man Byran Mills in the Taken franchise, Neeson will play an easy-going snow plow driver who gets caught up in the drugs underworld in the action thriller.
The movie is to be directed by Hans Petter Moland, who directed the original 2014 film.
Neeson, (63) is currently preparing to star in Felt and will play top former FBI agent who became the Deep Throat source during the Watergate cover-up during the Richard Nixon presidential administration.
