Liam Neeson Is “The Revenger”

Universal Pictures has acquired the action comedy pitch “The Revenger” and has set Liam Neeson to star.

The storyline is being kept under wraps but “Reno 911” creators and “Night at the Museum” franchise scribes Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant to are set to pen the script. This insinuates Neeson may well be satirising a genre he has become synonymous with in recent years.

Ruben Fleisher (“Zombieland”) will direct and produce alongside David Bernad, Scott Stuber and Dylan Clark through their Bluegrass Films and The District film shingles.
