HeatVision is reporting that Joel Kinnaman is in final negotiations to star opposite Liam Neeson in the Warner Bros. Pictures’ upcoming action film Run All Night. If he signs on, he would play the son of Neeson’s character with Jaume Collett-Sera directing.
In the film, written by Brad Ingelsby, Neeson will play a mob hitman who is forced to take on his former boss in a single night. The hitman protecting his estranged son, the pair wind up on the run from the mob together.
Kinnaman is best known for his role on AMC’s The Killing and the film Safe House. Next year, Kinnaman will likely explode into the public consciousness when he plays the title role in Jose Padhila‘s RoboCop.
