Liam Neeson on 'A Walk Among the Tombstones' in Thriller Trailer
We've seen Liam Neeson get into plenty of action in Taken, the wretched Taken 2, Unknown and Non-Stop earlier this year. Now he's toning it down a bit, but sticking with the thriller genre in A Walk Among the Tombstones. The film is based on Lawrence Block's novel of the same name, featuring Neeson as recurring character Matt Scudder, an ex-NYPD cop who now works as an unlicensed private investigator operating just outside the law. In this particular tale, he's helping a heroin trafficker hunt down the men who kidnapped and murdered his wife. It definitely has a more serious tone than Taken and seems to work.
Here's the first trailer for Scott Frank's A Walk Among the Tombstones, originally from Apple:
A Walk among the Tombstones is written and directed by Scott Frank (The Lookout). Liam Neeson plays Matt Scudder, an ex-NYPD cop who now works as an unlicensed private investigator operating just outside the law. When Scudder reluctantly agrees to help a heroin trafficker (Dan Stevens) hunt down the men who kidnapped and then brutally murdered his wife, the PI learns that this is not the first time these men have committed this sort of twisted crime…nor will it be the last. Scudder races to track the deviants through the backstreets of NYC before they kill again. Universal releases the film on September 19th this fall. Well?
