liam neeson unknown white male

Here’s some news I’m glad to hear. One of my favorite actors Liam Neeson has signed on to star in another kick ass role. According to THR, the Irish actor has signed on to star in Unknown White Male. Doesn’t that sound cryptic? It should, because it’s an upcoming thriller being produced by Dark Castle and Warner Brothers.

Unknown White Male will be directed by Jaume Collet-Serra. He’s the same guy who helmed last month’s Orphan, which was also produced by Dark Castle. The film’s story centers on “a doctor (Neeson) who,while visiting Berlin with his wife, is in a car accident that leaves him in a coma. He awakens to find that he seemingly has been replaced by another man, one with sinister intentions, leading the good doctor on a frantic quest to uncover the truth.”

I get the feeling that I’ve seen this movie before, but Liam Neeson’s in it so I’ll give it the benefit of the doubt. Even though I hated the remake of House of Wax, I thoroughly enjoyed Orphan. I thought it was a good horror film that too many people slept on. Shooting for Unknown White Male starts early next year in January.

What do you think of Liam Neeson’s latest movie role?
