Watch: Liam Neeson Loses His Identity in the 'Unknown' Trailer
"There is no Martin Harris. He doesn't exist." Whoa! Apparently this is was a very popular script around town years ago that finally got made. Unknown, shortened from the original title Unknown White Male, stars Liam Neeson as a man who takes up from a coma to find out that his identity has been stolen and that not even his wife recognizes him. The cast also includes January Jones, Diane Kruger, Frank Langella, Aidan Quinn. This has kind of a Taken mashed with Bourne Identity feel to it, with a little hint of Mission: Impossible. For a moment I thought it was going suddenly go sci-fi, but it looks like a great action thriller.

Unknown, originally called Unknown White Male, is directed by up-and-coming Spanish filmmaker Jaume Collet-Serra, who got his start making music videos and TV commercials first and then went on to direct the House of Wax remake in '05 and Orphan. The screenplay was co-written by Oliver Butcher (Dr. Jekyll and Ms. Hyde) and Stephen Cornwell (Killing Streets, Marshal Law). This was based Didier Van Cauwelaert's book of the same name, first published in France. This was filmed mostly in and around Berlin, Germany last winter. Warner Bros is bringing Unknown to theaters starting on February 18th, 2011 early next year.
