Neeson will play the protagonist role originated by Stellan Skarsgard. He’s a snowplow driver who doesn’t get worked up about much, until his son is murdered and it is made to look like an overdose, by criminals involved in drug deals. It turns the mild-mannered man’s attention from snow to body removal and becomes a tense action thriller with Dirty Harry-esque intensity, where bad guys pile up like snow drifts when the killers suspect a rival gang. The remake is being re-imagined to take place in a U.S. resort like Aspen with a different set of ethnic rivals than the Euro version, so Neeson’s character stays behind the wheel of the snow plow.
Neeson is prepping to star in the Peter Landesman-directed Felt, playing former FBI No. 2 Mark Felt, who became the Deep Throat source during the Watergate cover-up that undid the Nixon Administration.
