The last time we saw Liam Neeson in a remote, frosty climate, the end result was the underrated The Grey. Now, the king of the modern revenge thriller is heading back into snowy climes for his next project, Hard Powder.
This one is set in the Rocky Mountains, and sees Neeson playing a snow plough driver in a skiing time. One day, though, a local drug kingpin murders his son, clearly having not watched the Taken trilogy. You don’t need us to tell you that violence and revenge will follow, involving in this case a mafia boss, and a vegan gangster. We don’t make this stuff up.
The film has been penned by Frank Baldwin, and it’s set to be directed by Hans Petter Moland. The film is based on Moland’s original Norwegian feature, In Order Of Disappearance.
Filming is set to begin next month in Alberta. No word yet on a release date, but we’re happy to preorder our ticket, based on what we know thus far…
