Liam Neeson wants revenge again.
Pity anyone who displeases him in life -- the wrong coffee order, lost dry cleaning, misdirected mail.
He WILL find you.
This time, in "Cold Pursuit," Neeson plays a snowplow driver seeking revenge for the death of his son. Oh, and Laura Dern apparently plays his wife. From the trailer -- which just came out -- it does seem like a typical "the wife" role. But it's Laura f*cking Dern, so there has to be more to it. "Shameless" star Emmy Rossum is also here as a local police officer. Here's hoping she goes Full "Fargo."
But mostly it's Liam Neeson glaring, punching, and plowing people down. This is how he makes the big bucks.
"Cold Pursuit" is 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.
Here's the movie synopsis:
"'Cold Pursuit,' an action thriller infused with irreverent humor, stars Liam Neeson as Nels Coxman, a family man whose quiet life with his wife (Laura Dern) is upended following the mysterious death of their son. Nels’ search for justice turns into a vengeful hunt for Viking (Tom Bateman), a drug lord he believes is connected to the death. As one by one each of Viking’s associates 'disappear,' Nels goes from upstanding citizen to ice-cold vigilante, letting nothing — and no one — get in his way."
And here's the trailer:
Yeah, speaking of gangster nicknames -- we're obviously going to have to call Neeson Mr. Plow.
"Cold Pursuit" opens in theaters February 8, 2019.
