Liam Neeson to go parts ‘Unknown’

Joel Silver to produce Dark Castle thriller

Liam Neeson is negotiating to star in “Unknown White Male,” the Dark Castle thriller that will be directed by Jaume Collet-Serra.

Joel Silver is producing with Leonard Goldberg. Oliver Butcher and Stephen Cornwell wrote the script, based on the Didier Van Cauwelaertnovel “Out of My Head.”

The plan is for production to begin in January.

Neeson will play a doctor who goes to Berlin for a medical conference and gets into a car accident. When he awakens from a coma, he discovers that his wife doesn’t recognize him — and she’s living with another man who has assumed his identity.

Neeson, who last starred in the Pierre Morel-directed sleeper hit “Taken,” will take on the role after completing 20th Century Fox’s “The A-Team,” to be directed by Joe Carnahan based on the TV series.

Collet-Serra helmed recent release “Orphan” for Dark Castle.
