Just when everybody thought that Hollywood superstar Liam Neeson is done with revenge-seeking roles in movies, the Irish actor is back again. Neeson is back with a new movie and a somewhat similar role as his previous ones.
Liam Nesson, 64, is set to star in the new action thriller Hard Powder and the actor would be playing another revenge-seeking type of character but only this time he'll be using a snowplow, according to a report from The Hollywood Reporter. Hard Powder is set to be released at the Berlin Film Festival next month.
Hard Powder is a film from European group Studiocanal and produced by Michael Shamberg. It will be directed by Hans Petter Moland from a screenplay by Frank Baldwin.
Studiocanal will fully finance Liam Neeson's latest film. The studio outfit will also distribute it in its home territories of the U.K., Germany, France, Australia and New Zealand.
Hard Powder is an adaption of director Hans Petter Moland's 2014 original Norwegian film In Order of Dissapearance. Neeson stars as the lead character Nels. Nels is an upstanding snowplow driver and a recipient of the Citizen of The Year prize from his posh Colorado ski town.
Nels life would suddenly turn upside down with the death of his son. Nels son is murdered by a powerful local drug kingpin.
With the murder of his son, Nels suddenly goes on a rampage as he seeks to destroy the drug cartel, with a Tesla-driving, Native American mafia boss. Nels would not be stopped until he reaches the big boss of the cartel. His vengeful journey then sparks a territorial war between a Viking gangster and the Native American mafia boss.
Liam Neeson has already starred in a number of blockbuster hit action films like the Taken series and Non-Stop. Neeson is last seen in the Martin Scorsese's drama Silence, which received favorable reviews, via a report from Forbes.
