Liam Neeson Gets Hands In The Air In Non-Stop First Look
Liam Neeson has always been a hard-working actor, but in the past few years he has proven tirelessly prolific, appearing in three to four films a year. Fitting then that he's now shooting an action-thriller called Non-Stop. The feature penned by Christopher Roach and John W. Richardson reunites Neeson with his Unknown director, Jaume Collet-Serra. Despite its lackluster title, that $30 million mystery movie went on to earn more than $130 million worldwide. So it's easy to see why Unknown's producer Joel Silver would be eager to reteam its star and helmer for this thriller.
In Non-Stop, Neeson plays Bill Marks, a long-time Air Marshall who has lost site of the importance of his work, viewing it as the world's highest altitude desk job. But his viewpoint changes completely on an international flight from New York to London, where terrorists demand $150 million from the government, threatening one of the plane's 200 passengers will die every 20 minutes their demands are not met. It's a cat and mouse tale that's sure to terrify audiences…especially those who might see it as in flight entertainment.

Currently in production in New York City, Non-Stop boasts a supporting cast that includes Julianne Moore, Scoot McNairy, Corey Stoll, Michelle Dockery, Anson Mount, Nate Parker, and Bar Paly. Though Universal Pictures is slated to distribute the thriller domestically, no U.S. release date has yet been announced. Nonetheless, Non-Stop is expected to touchdown in 2013.
