StudioCanal and The Picture Company, Deadline reports, have tapped Neeson as the lead in their suspense thriller The Commuter, which will focus on Neeson's character, a businessman commuting home from work who will unwittingly becomes involved in a criminal conspiracy.

Of course, his involvement will put not only his life but those around him in a heap of danger. 

var spotx_content_player_width = Math.max(document.getElementById('spotx_collapse').offsetWidth, 300); var spotx_content_player_height = parseInt(spotx_content_player_width * 0.75); var spotx_script = document.createElement('script'); var spotx_ad_done_function = function(bPlayedAd) { // Remove margin document.getElementById('spotx_collapse').style.marginBottom = "0px"; // Hide if we didn't show ad if (!bPlayedAd) { document.getElementById('spotx_collapse').style.display = "none"; } }; spotx_script.setAttribute('src',''); if (is_mobile) { spotx_script.setAttribute('data-spotx_channel_id','121558'); } else { spotx_script.setAttribute('data-spotx_unmute_on_mouse','1'); spotx_script.setAttribute('data-spotx_channel_id','123161'); } spotx_script.setAttribute('data-spotx_ad_unit','incontent'); spotx_script.setAttribute('data-spotx_ad_volume','0'); spotx_script.setAttribute('data-spotx_ad_mute','1'); spotx_script.setAttribute('data-spotx_content_width',spotx_content_player_width); spotx_script.setAttribute('data-spotx_content_height',spotx_content_player_height); spotx_script.setAttribute('data-spotx_autoplay','1'); spotx_script.setAttribute('data-spotx_collapse','1'); document.getElementById('spotx_collapse').appendChild(spotx_script);

That's territory with which Neeson has become very familiar, as he's successfully reinvented himself as an action hero of late, not only with the Taken film series, but with other movies such as Non-Stop and Run All Night.

Taken is also being reinvented with a prequel series for television on NBC. Neeson will not star.

If you want to see what all the Liam Neeson fuss is about, you can watch Non-Stop online right now. Why not? It's worth the effort!
