Jaume Collet-Serra to Direct Neeson in ‘Non-Stop’
Obviously pleased with the success of last year's small-budget action thriller Unknown, producer Joel Silver has reunited star Liam Neeson and director Jaume Collet-Serra for the airborne thriller Non-Stop.
Neeson got on board Dark Castle Entertaiment's "contained, gritty action thriller centering on an air marshal flying on a domestic flight" just last month and now Variety reports Collet-Serra will join him.
director has entertained a number of projects since last year's modest $130-million (global) hit, including the sequel to 300
, and was supposed to helm Warner Bros. live-action remake of Akira
before the project was scrapped.
Silver has been developing the film since August when he picked up the spec script from John Richardson
and Chris Roach
. It was initially believed that Jeff Wadlow
(Never Back Down
) would direct, but now that Collet-Serra is available, he makes this a much more interesting project.
Production on Non-Stop
is planned for October.
