Liam Neeson hunts Unknown White Male

Looks like Liam Neeson's thriller days definitely didn't stop with Taken.

He's in final negotiations to take the lead in Unknown White Male, which Joel Silver's Dark Castle is producing.

Orphan director Jaume Collet-Serra below) will be behind the camera for the movie, which is based on Didier Van Caulwelaert book 'Out Of My Head'.

And the story? It follows a doctor (Neeson) who heads to a medical conference in Berlin, only to get injured in a car accident.

He's thrown into a coma and when he wakes up, his wife doesn't recognise him and is living with a stranger who has assumed his identity.

Now that's phising for you...

The film will start shooting in January, which gives Neeson time to work on The A-Team with Joe Carnahan and to keep throwing darts at a picture of Steven Spielberg, who refuses to get to work on the Abraham Lincoln biopic that Neeson has been preparing for these past few years.
