Liam Neeson is starring in another revenge thriller -- but this time he's not a cop or an ex-CIA agent with a "special set of skills." In "Hard Powder," he'll play a snowplow driver who's going up against (what else?) a drug cartel.  Gotta love those snow/drug puns.

It's a remake of the Norwegian film "In Order of Disappearance," which starred Stellan Skarsgård as a man hellbent on revenge for his son's murder. Skarsgård's character was named "Nils Dickman," but Neeson's character will be dubbed (ahem) "Nels Coxman."

As if that (and the prospect of death by snowplow) isn't enough incentive, Laura Dern will costar as Neeson's wife.

Per Deadline, the film will open in February 8, 2019.
