Liam Neeson to Star in Action-Thriller ‘The Minuteman’

Liam Neeson is returning to familiar turf, starring in the independent action-thriller “The Minuteman” from director Robert Lorenz.

“The Minuteman” will be produced by Zero Gravity Management’s Tai Duncan and Mark Williams, alongside Sculptor Media’s Warren Goz and Eric Gold. Raven Capital Management’s James Masciello will executive produce. Voltage CEO Nicolas Chartier and Jonathan Deckter will also executive produce the movie.

Neeson is represented by CAA. Lorenz is repped by UTA and Keith Fleer. Charles and Kravitz are repped by Zero Gravity Management. Raven and Sculptor are repped by Robert Sherman of DLA Piper. Ron Levin from Levin Law Corp reps Voltage.
