Liam Neeson has signed on to re-team with his “Michael Collins” director Neil Jordan for the horse-training drama “The Trainer” for HanWay Films.
Neeson will star as John Moore, a west Irish horse trainer who loses everything he cherishes and almost forgets to live. Into his life comes Nadya, a teen refugee who finds herself in a confounding new world.
Their only connection is a horse called Allabelle who will prove that they may all have one race left inside of them.
David Donohue, James Villemaire and Todd Komarnicki penned the script while Arthur Lappin, Komarnicki, Robin Gurland and Gregory O’Connor will produce. Filming begins in Ireland next summer.
