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.
