Liam Neeson to Film New Movies “Cold Storage” and “Thug” Back to Back

Production Update

Liam Neeson is set to begin filming on two new films back to back. “Cold Storage” and “Thug” are slated to begin production one after another with the former filming sometime in the Fall and “Thug” set to begin shooting in October in Los Angeles.

Saying these films will be shooting back to back may be overly generous as their productions schedules may in-fact overlap. Despite his increasing age Liam Neeson continues to get roles where action sequences are a key part of the drama. That’s not different for these two upcoming films which will have Neeson once again heading straight into harm’s way.

“Cold Storage” Synopsis

When Pentagon bioterror operative Roberto Diaz was sent to investigate a suspected biochemical attack, he found something far worse: a highly mutative organism capable of extinction-level destruction. He contained it and buried it in cold storage deep beneath a little-used military repository. Now, after decades of festering in a forgotten sub-basement, the specimen has found its way out and is on a lethal feeding frenzy. Only Diaz knows how to stop it.

He races across the country to help two unwitting security guards—one an ex-con, the other a single mother. Over one harrowing night, the unlikely trio must figure out how to quarantine this horror again. All they have is luck, fearlessness, and a mordant sense of humor. Will that be enough to save all of humanity?

“Cold Storage” Cast and Crew

Westworld director Jonny Campbell is set to direct “Cold Storage” in which Neeson and Stranger Things Actor Joe Keery are to star in. A veteran of many blockbuster films, David Koepp, will be handling the script. He is known for writing the screenplays for Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008), Angels & Demons (2009), and Jurassic World (2015).
