Coming off his $10 million paycheck for Taken 2 and before he books his a third outing, Liam Neeson will be heading up in the air for his next action thriller. Casting has been coming together for the film titled Non-Stop, which brings Neeson back together with Unknown director Jaume Collet-Serra, as Red Hook Summer star Nate Parker recently boarded.
Now Variety reports on some more major additions, as Julianne Moore, Scoot McNairy, Michelle Dockery are all going on the same flight. The story follows Neeson as a Federal air marshal whose ordinary flight is interrupted when a domestic terrorist makes it his goal to kill one passenger, every twenty minutes, if the protagonist doesn’t commit suicide.
No specific details on their roles, but Moore is without question a great addition, while McNairy is set for a stellar fall. The Monsters actor has a supporting role in this week’s Argo and a major one in Andrew Dominik‘s Killing Them Softly. Dockery is also breaking out on the popular series Downtown Abbey and will be seen in Anna Karenina.
The $50 million production kicks off on November 1st in New York.
