Watch a slightly less than savoury Liam Neeson search for the men who killed the wife of a much less than savoury Dan Stevens.
Wow. Talk about bleak. Everyone in this movie has done something bad, even if it’s by accident.
I have to say that I’m looking forward to this though because in between the huge number of action movies that he churns out these days Liam Neeson does put in some efforts where he actually has to, you know, act and I think some of us have forgotten that Liam Neeson is actually a great actor.
Scott Frank has done a lot of good writing work and also directed 2007’s The Lookout, which is a film more people need to see.
A Walk Among The Tombstones is due out 19th September. Here’s the poster and official Synopsis:
Based on Lawrence Block’s bestselling series of mystery novels, A Walk among the Tombstones stars Liam Neeson as Matt Scudder, an ex-NYPD cop who now works as an unlicensed private investigator operating just outside the law. When Scudder reluctantly agrees to help a heroin trafficker (Dan Stevens) hunt down the men who kidnapped and then brutally murdered his wife, the PI learns that this is not the first time these men have committed this sort of twisted crime…nor will it be the last. Blurring the lines between right and wrong, Scudder races to track the deviants through the backstreets of New York City before they kill again. Written and directed by Scott Frank (The Lookout), A Walk among the Tombstones is produced by Jersey Films’ Danny DeVito, Double Feature Films’ Michael Shamberg and Stacey Sher, Exclusive Media’s Tobin Armbrust and Cross Creek Pictures’ Brian Oliver. Universal will distribute the film in North America.
