Although he goes by the name Bill Marks in the latest thriller from director Jaume Collet-Serra, it seems like Liam Neeson could more or less be continuing his Taken role of Brian Mills. Reteaming with his Unknown helmer, Non-Stop follows Neeson as an air marshal aboard a plane that gets (wait for it) terrorized.
With a strong cast, including two break-out stars of last year, Scoot McNairy (Argo, Killing Them Softly, Promised Land) and Nate Parker (Red Hook Summer, Arbitrage), as well as Julianne Moore, Michelle Dockery, Corey Stoll, Anson Mount and Bar Paly. While it didn’t go over well, we were fans of Collet-Serra’s last outing with Neeson, so hopefully this one delivers some fun B-movie thrills. Check out the first image above via EW and the synopsis below.
Bill Marks (Liam Neeson) is a burned-out veteran of the Air Marshals service. He views the assignment not as a life-saving duty, but as a desk job in the sky. However, today’s flight will be no routine trip.
Shortly into the transatlantic journey from New York to London, he receives a series of mysterious text messages ordering him to have the government transfer $150 million into a secret account, or a passenger will die every 20 minutes. What follows is a nail-biting cat and mouse game played at 40,000 feet, with the lives of 200 passengers hanging in the balance.
Expect a 2013 release for Non-Stop.
