Neeson Set for Silberling’s An Ordinary Man


Liam Neeson tells Variety he’s added another project to his busy schedule:

He’s hoping to take the lead in a low-budget indie project that director Brad Silberling is trying to set up, “An Ordinary Man.” The role would be a rare departure to the dark side, a fugitive war criminal modelled on former Serbian leader Slobodan Milosevic who’s being hidden by his supporters..

Neeson can currently be seen in a cameo role in The Next Three Days. He again voices Aslan in The Chronicles of Naria: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader later this month and also has the thriller Unknown coming out in February. He has small roles in The Hangover Part II and Battleship, and he’ll return for Clash of the Titans 2 as well.

In January, Neeson will start shooting Joe Carnahan’s The Grey and then he’s committed to play a sheriff on the U.S./Mexican border in Ji-Woon Kim’s Last Stand.
