Liam Neeson, Non-Stop
Since 2009's surprise hit "Taken," Liam Neeson, an actor formerly known for his serious performances in things like "Schindler's List" and "Michael Collins," has taken up residence as a go-to action icon. In the last few years he's been "Taken" twice (with a third installment on the way), battled a nasty nest of aquatic aliens in "Battleship," and been mercilessly hunted by a pack of wild wolves in the admirably grim "The Grey." With his massive frame and his gravelly voice that sounds like he's continually just finished off several dozen cigarettes, he's the rare action star who actually seems like he could handle the preposterous situations he's dealt. And in his latest thriller, "Non-Stop," that situation is pretty preposterous indeed: this time the star is cast as an alcoholic air marshal accused of hijacking a transatlantic flight. Thankfully, no wolves are on the plane.

Cue fanboy panic! While devoted anime heads likely breathed a sign of relief when Warner Bros. kiboshed plans for a live action remake of "Akira" in early 2012, the project never really disappeared. Within days of that announcement, word circulated that they were looking at a new screenwriter and it looks like whatever reservations they had last time out have disappeared, as they are bringing the gang back together for another crack at the project.

Liam Neeson and director Jaume Collet-Serra seem to be developing a B-movie version of the Martin Scorsese/Robert De Niro relationship. Ever since Neeson refashioned himself as an action star, Collet-Serra has seemed to frequent in his plans, helming obviously titled movies "Unknown" (Neeson is an amnesiac who punches people), the forthcoming "Non-Stop" (Neeson is an air marshal on an international flight who punches people) and now "Run All Night."

Spanish filmmaker Jaume Collet-Serra, best known for the 2005 remake of "House of Wax" and 2009's "Orphan" (a very respectable $76 million worldwide) is turning into quite the B-movie cottage industry force.

Multi-hyphenate Eli Roth certainly hasn't just been lazing about over the past decade—he tackled a sizeable role as the Bear Jew in buddy Quentin Tarantino's "Inglorious Basterds," kick-started a new horror franchise as a producer with "The Last Exorcism," and soon will even be starring in Chilean earthquake thriller "Aftershock" (which he also produced)—but he has been absent from the director's chair since 2007's "Hostel: Part 2." While many are divided on whether Roth is a genre maven or just a lucky hack, there's no denying he's had a solid fan base hounding for an extension of his "Grindhouse" faux trailer "Thanksgiving" for some time now, with Roth even looking to expand the scope of his filmmaking with a big budget sci-fi picture entitled "Endangered Species." Word has been quiet on both those fronts, but now a little news has stirred up that could have Roth finally directing on a much larger scale.

It may not have been everybody’s cup of tea, but Jaume Collet-Serra’s 2009 film "Orphan" was bold and bonkers enough that it made us sit up and pay a little more attention to the director, whose previous efforts had been a “House of Wax” remake and “Goal II: Living the Dream.” He followed “Orphan” with last year’s Liam Neeson vehicle/”Taken” cash-in “Unknown,” and it looks like Collet-Serra enjoyed being in the Neeson business.

Even without his longtime muse Penelope Cruz, Pedro Almodovar didn't miss a beat with actress Elena Anaya as his female lead in the Frankenstein-style tale "The Skin I Live In." The actress shined opposite a revived Antonio Banderas in an excellent role that should give her career a nice boost.

Jaume Collet-Serra must not be reeling from Warner Bros. shutting down his live-action remake of “Akira” back in January, as it was revealed recently that he’s already on to something else, potentially lining up Russell Crowe for his Dracula reimagining, “Harker,” and now word comes that he’s going to be helping a smaller film get off the ground.
