Neeson/Collet-Serra Thriller, THE COMMUTER, Adds Patrick Wilson


If you’re keen on another thrilling pair-up with actor Liam Neeson and filmmaker Jaume Collet-Serra, you can look forward to their latest, The Commuter, which is already underway with backing courtesy of StudioCanal and Lionsgate handling distribution in due time. The Picture Company’s Andrew Rona and Alex Heineman are producing from a script by Philip de Blasi and Byron Willinger, and is still apparently in the midst of casting which now leads to today’s report from THR of actor Patrick Wilson’s addition to the film.

Details are albeit vague but largely hint at Wilson’s role as that of the trusted friend of a beleagured insurance salesman on his regular train commute home as he finds himself forced by a mysterious straphanger to uncover a passenger’s identity before it reaches its terminal. Also starring is actress Vera Farmiga who plays the straphanger, marking her latest reunion with Wilson since following up from their 2013 horror installation, The Conjuring, with its commercial hit sequel back in June, both from Furious Seven helmer James Wan.
