Liam Neeson is ready to kick a little and does not even bother to take some names in the latest look at his upcoming action movie, Black light, which has now been put to cinema release on February 11, 2022 by Open Road Films and Briarcliff Entertainment. The picture finds Neeson in familiar position, looking as gruff and determined as ever with gun in hand as he again finds himself in a conspiracy that will require the use of his very special set of skills.
Directed by Mark Williams, who has worked with Liam Neeson before on last year’s action thriller, Honest thief, and from a manuscript by Nick May, Black light also plays Aidan Quinn (Elementary), Emmy Raver-Lampman (Umbrella Academy) and Taylor John Smith (Sharp objects) along with the expert age action hero. The film finds Neeson as a problematic fixer who works from the FBI books and has the task of pulling undercover agents out of dangerous situations. As is so often the case, he suddenly finds himself in the middle of a deadly conspiracy when such an agent questions the very people he works for.
Black light is produced by Footloose Productions’ Paul Currie, Williams, Nestel, Coco Ma from Sina Studios and Alevé Loh on behalf of Zero Gravity Management. Executive producers are Zhe Chen, Lisa Wilson, Craig Chapman, James Michael Cummings, Craig McMahon, Paul Saleba and Ortenberg.
“BLACKLIGHT is a timely action thriller with a ‘torn from today’s headlines’ feel for it from start to finish,” says Ortenberg about the project. “It’s an honor to work with the incomparable Liam Neeson for the sixth time and once again partner with friends Myles Nestel and multi-dash filmmaker Mark Williams.”
“I’m super excited to partner with Tom and Briarcliff to release Blacklight to a wide audience,” Nestel added. “Liam and Mark have once again delivered the action and excitement that audiences must experience on the big screen.” The Entertainment solution most recently worked with Neeson on Ice Road and Honest Thief, directed by Williams. According to Williams, “It was great to work with Liam again,” where the film allowed the actor to “unleash a very unique character who operates in gray spaces between right and wrong.”
Despite saying several times that he’s ready to retire from the action heroes game, (“Oh, yeah. I think so. I’m 68 and a half. 69 this year. There are a few more, I’m going to do this year – hopefully COVID allows us- there’s a couple on the way and then I think it probably will be. Well, unless I’m on a Zimmer frame or something, “) Neeson continues to trade the name of our entertainment. Along side Black light, Neeson will strike and shoot evil again in director Martin Campbells Memory, and the upcoming thriller Retribution, as well as returning to the snow-covered lands of Kehoe, Colorado for a sequel to the 2019 action thriller Cold hunting.
Black light will be released in the US by Open Road Films and Briarcliff Entertainment on February 11, 2022.
