Liam Neeson appears to still be on a streak of endless thrillers. Next he is set to star in the adaptation of the Michael Ignatieff novel Charlie Johnson in the Flames.
Neeson will play a BBC war correspondent covering civil unrest in the Congo. When the death of an innocent woman shakes him to his core, he risks everything to expose the truth – only to find himself embroiled in a network of murder, corruption, and violence that forces him to question his humanity.
Neeson’s recent thrillers (Silence, Run All Night etc) have been good, whereas his recent ‘actiony’ movies have been more suspect.
Tarik Saleh will direct Charlie Johnson in the Flames from a script by Justin Haythe, with Michael London, Jawal Nga and Edward Saxon producing.
