Liam Neeson has signed on to star in Run All Night for Warner Bros., with Jaume Collet-Serra in negotiations to direct.

The story centers on a hitman who takes on his former mob boss. He ends up going on the run with his wife and estranged son, fleeing from this dangerous mafia leader and the authorities as well. If Jaume Collet-Serra finalizes a deal to direct, this will be his third collaboration with Liam Neeson. He previously directed the actor in Unknown, and they are both currently shooting Non-Stop.

Brad Ingelsby (Out of the Furnace) wrote the screenplay, with Roy Lee and Brooklyn Weaver producing. John Powers Middleton is serving as executive producer. Warner Bros. is looking to start production later this fall.
