Julianne Moore, Scoot McNairy & 'Downton Abbey' Star Michelle Dockery Join Liam Neeson In 'Non-Stop'

While we wait for Fox to convince Liam Neeson to return for "Taken 3," that they clearly want, for those of you looking for more low-rent, insipid action from the actor, he's got "Non-Stop" coming. It's just too bad he's bringing some other actors who deserve better down with him.

Julianne Moore Scoot McNairy Michelle Dockery

While we wait for Fox to convince Liam Neeson to return for "Taken 3," that they clearly want, for those of you looking for more low-rent, insipid action from the actor, he's got "Non-Stop" coming. It's just too bad he's bringing some other actors who deserve better down with him.

The usually excellent Julianne Moore, "Downton Abbey" star Michelle Dockery and rising actor Scoot McNairy (who features in "Killing Them Softly" and "Promised Land" in the next couple of months) have all boarded "Non-Stop." The story -- which is essentially "Taken" but on an airplane -- takes place on an international flight, where federal marshal Neeson receives text messages from someone claiming to be on the plane, threatening to take it down. Neeson must figure out who it is and then punch them. Or something. So maybe it's "Cellular" crossed with "Taken," then? Either way, it sounds dreadful.

Jaume Collet-Serra, who directed Neeson in the equally anonymous and dumb "Unknown," is at the helm. But when movies like "Taken 2" make $50 million at the box office on opening weekend, you get the dreck you deserve. Filming begins next month. [Variety]
