New cast of Liam Neeson’s Retribution announced
Action star Liam Neeson's latest film Retribution is heading to Lionsgate. The film distributor has acquired the North American and Indian rights to Retribution starring Neeson as a businessman caught in a mystery that threatens the lives of his family.
The film is made by Predators' director Nimród Antal and marks Neeson and Studiocanal's reunion with Lionsgate after they last partnered for the release of Cold Pursuit back in 2019.
Neeson was originally announced to star in the film in late 2020, marking a reunion with producer Jaume Collet-Serra, who directed his previous films Unknown, Non-Stop, and The Commuter. Since then, Neeson has been joined in the cast by Matthew Modine, Jack Champion, Lilly Apell, Arian Moayed, and his old Schindler's List colleague Embeth Davidtz.
Retribution follows Matt Turner (Neeson), an American businessman in Berlin who winds up in a Speed-like race against time to save not only himself but the lives of his children. While heading to school to drop his kids off, Turner gets a phone call from an unknown number revealing his vehicle is armed to explode. He's forced to follow the instructions given by the mysterious caller to keep the bombs from going off while trying to figure out what's going on and who's behind the threats.
There's currently no release date for Retribution yet.
