Liam Neeson’s The Commuter gears up
Liam Neeson’s next feature, The Commuter, is set to start filming next month in the UK, with Vera Farmiga the latest talent to board the project.
The start date for principal photography is listed on PI along with the studio and HoDs including the location manager, production designer, production co-ordinator and UPM.
Jaume Collet-Serra directs the thriller from a screenplay by Philip de Blasi and Byron Willinger. It centres on a businessman (Neeson) as he embarks on a dangerous journey on a commuter train and becomes entangled with Farmiga’s enigmatic but dangerous conspirator.
We first listed The Commuter on PI back in mid-April and have since detailed HoDs including the location manager, production designer and production co-ordinator.
