Helmer in talks to reunite with Liam Neeson on Dark Castle pic
Pic takes place on an international flight on which Neeson is forced into stopping a threat.
Plan is for production to start in October in Gotham. Pic will likely be distributed wherever Silver signs his next production deal.
The reteaming of Neeson and Collet-Serra makes sense for Dark Castle, with “Unknown” having grossed $130 million worldwide.
Silver has been having a good B.O. run of late, with “Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows” outgrossing its predecessor at more than $530 million worldwide. His latest film, the low-budget comedy “Project X,” is closing in on $100 million worldwide.
Collet-Serra is repped by CAA Hansen Jacobson Teller Hoberman Newman Warren Richman Rush & Kaller.
