Neeson To “Walk Among the Tombstones”

The film adaptation of “A Walk Among Tombstones”, based on Lawrence Frank’s book series, is finally moving forward at Exclusive Media and Cross Creek Pictures after years in stalled development says The Hollywood Reporter.

Liam Neeson has been cast in the lead and Scott Frank is taking the director’s seat after having adapted the script from the book of the same name which is a part of Lawrence Block’s series with his popular literary character Matthew Scudder.

Harrison Ford was attached to star and D.J. Caruso to direct in previous incarnations. Universal will release the film domestically and shooting will begin on location in New York next year.
