"Downton Abbey" star Dan Stevens is eyeing a role in the upcoming thriller A Walk Among the Tombstones, Variety reports. His specific role has not been disclosed, but he would join the headlining Liam Neeson.
Formerly a cop with the NYPD, now an unlicensed private eye and a recovering alcoholic haunted by past mistakes, Neeson stars as Matt Scudder, who is hired to find the kidnapped wife of a drug dealer. He operates just outside the law where the police donít go to track down the kidnappers, who he discovers have been involved in multiple kidnappings and brutal murders.
Scott Frank (The Lookout) wrote and will direct the film with Double Feature Films partners Michael Shamberg and Stacey Sher to produce with Danny DeVito and his company, Jersey Films.
