Liam Neeson‘s prowling for some jobs. One day after his name cropped up in conjunction with a new thriller, Non-Stop, Vulture reports that he and Olivia Wilde will have a little Next Three Days reunion with Paul Haggis on Third Person. (Three people from The Next Three Days will make Third Person.)
“It’s about three story lines, three love stories, three relationships in three different cities that combine in a very odd way: New York, Paris, Rome.”
In a case of age-inappropriate casting, Neeson will be seen as the boyfriend to Wilde, who herself is a “party reporter.” (Oh, come on, that’s not a real job. Or maybe I’m just not hip enough to recognize its legitimacy.) The actor said a little more to TalkTalk, revealing that, “at the minute,” he think he’s playing a writer — along with the hint that he has “some serious love-making to do” with his co-star. (Onscreen.)
In terms of plot, this much came across:
“It’s about a writer trying to get over a tragic death that he emotionally tries to access through the characters he writes about. He imagines their reactions to this tragic death of a kid drowning in a swimming pool.”
Further casting or shooting dates are not up for grabs right now. And where does this put his political drama, Paris? IMDb does not have anything, nor is there any mention of it in the report; a shame. Canada needs their political system examined by the Crash guy.

In the case of evaluating David Cronenberg, — or at least forming the sort of career narrative seemingly essential to auteurist analysis — it’s inevitable to propose something of a rupture within his oeuvre: the very evident graduation from grindhouse to arthouse, and, with it, an ascension from body to mind. What dictated these labels […]

Writing about the films of Robert Bresson usually begins by informing reader that his films must be discussed through a trance of hushed tones and quiet veneration. There is no room for rushed judgement or quick-witted observations; Bresson makes Serious Art, as opposed to Hollywood directors who do not. There are the key phrases to […]
