Fasten your seatbelts, because we have another thrillingly bumpy adventure with Liam Neeson ahead of us. Neeson is set to star in the American remake of the Norwegian film In Order of Disappearance, as first reported by Deadline. The role which was originated by Stellan Skarsgård will find Neeson playing “a snowplow driver who doesn’t get worked up about much, until his son is murdered and it is made to look like an overdose, by criminals involved in drug deals.” The sudden death then “turns the mild-mannered man’s attention from snow to body removal” and soon “bad guys pile up like snow drifts when the killers suspect a rival gang.” Our predictive tally of grisly deaths by snowmobile: 100. (Hey, it could be worse.)
