‘The Commuter’ Adds Trio, Sets October 2017 Arrival In U.S.


Liam Neeson’s The Commuter is taking on more passengers. Sam Neill, Elizabeth McGovern and Jonathan Banks have joined the cast of the action thriller being helmed by Neeson’s Non-Stop helmer Jaume Collet-Serra. Lionsgate has set a October 13, 2017 release for the pic in the U.S.

Vera Farmiga co-stars with Neeson and will play a mysterious woman who boards a commuter train and proposes an enticing opportunity to Neeson’s character — one that has dire circumstances if he accepts. The film has Hitchcock-ian elements like North By Northwest and Strangers On A Train.

Byron Willinger and Phil de Blasi wrote the script. The film is being produced by The Picture Company’s Andrew Rona and Alex Heineman and shooting begins July 25.

Collet-Serra and Ombra Films Partner Juan Sola exec produce and Studiocanal’s Ron Halpern is also a producer.
