Given the reputation of Neeson, the actor took the opportunity to interpret other pawns of action films such as A Day to Survive, Nonstop, One Night to Survive, Unknown, among others. To continue with the name of the actor, a new action film entitled The Commuter (The Traveler) was released.
The new film directed by Jaume Collet-Serra (who made hits such as Deep Fear, Unknown, No Scales and The House of Wax) tells the story of an insurance salesman, Michael Woolrich (Liam Neeson) who is put to the test by a mysterious woman where she threatens her life and loved ones if she does not solve a riddle inside a commuter train.
The new film is scheduled to hit theaters on January 12, 2018. The cast is made up of Liam Neeson, Vera Farmiga (The Sorcery), Patrick Wilson (The Sorcery), Jonathan Banks (Breaking Bad), Elizabeth McGobern (Downton Abbey), Sam Niell (Jurassic Park) among others.
Michael Woolrich (Liam Neeson) gets up in the morning like any day. He takes his wedding ring, he serves his coffee, he greets his children and he says goodbye to his wife (Elizabeth McGovern, Downton Abbey) to take the train he uses to go to work. The same for the last ten years. The only difference on that day is Joanna (Vera Farmiga, Philip K. Dick's Electric Dreams), a mysterious woman attached to flashy shoes that offers a game based on human behavior. That is the premise of The Commuter, the new 'thriller' by Jaume Collet-Serra and his fourth film with Neeson.
