Neeson boarding airline thriller ‘Non-Stop’

Will play an air marshal facing a threat on an international flight

“Unknown” star Liam Neeson may be getting back in business with Joel Silver’s Dark Castle Entertainment, as he’s in negotiations to topline its contained thriller “Non-Stop.”

Warner Bros. originally picked up the airplane spec from John Richardson and Chris Roach back in August. Silver is producing the pic with Andrew Rona and Alex Heineman.

Neeson is in talks to play a worn-out air marshal who faces a threat while traveling on an international flight. Variety previously reported that Jeff Wadlow was attached to direct.

Dark Castle is financing and producing the pic, which WB will distribute. Dark Castle’s last Neeson pic, “Unknown,” grossed $130 million worldwide.

Neeson, who recently starred in “The Grey,” can currently be seen as Zeus in WB’s “Wrath of the Titans.” He just wrapped “Taken 2” and will soon be seen in Universal’s “Battleship” and “The Dark Knight Rises,” which Warners opens July 20.

Neeson is repped by CAA, Artist Rights Group and attorney Mark Stankevich.
