Collet-Serra booking ‘Non-Stop’ trip

Helmer in talks to reunite with Liam Neeson on Dark Castle pic

Jaume Collet-Serra looks ready to reteam with his “Unknown” star Liam Neeson, as the helmer is in negotiations to direct “Non-Stop” for Joel Silver.

Pic takes place on an international flight on which Neeson is forced into stopping a threat.

Silver picked up the airplane spec from John Richardson and Chris Roach in August, and is producing with Andrew Rona and Alex Heineman.

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.
