Liam Neeson to star in new crime thriller from Goldeneye director

Liam Neeson will headline action crime thriller “Memory” for Martin Campbell (“Casino Royale,” “Goldeneye”) and STX International.

The project, being repped at the EFM in Berlin by the latter, follows Neeson as an expert assassin who himself becomes a target when he refuses to complete a job for a dangerous criminal organization. The FBI is also on his tail, forcing the assassin to call on his exceptional skills to stay one step ahead.

Dario Scardapane (“The Bridge,” Netflix’s “The Punisher”) wrote the script, based on Dutch film “The Memory of a Killer.”

Production begins in August.
