Have mercy on any man, nationality or gender that gives Liam Neeson a hard time. Deadlier than Spanish Flu, the former Darkman has already wiped out the slave trade, an entire species of wolves and the entire arm of the East-European mafia. And for his next trick, he’ll be killing his own guilt as he plays detective.
Based on Lawrence Block’s bestselling series of mystery novels, “A Walk Among the Tombstones” stars Liam Neeson as Matt Scudder, an ex-NYPD cop who now works as an unlicensed private investigator operating just outside the law. When Scudder reluctantly agrees to help a heroin trafficker (Dan Stevens) hunt down the men who kidnapped and then brutally murdered his wife, the PI learns that this is not the first time these men have committed this sort of twisted crime…nor will it be the last. Blurring the lines between right and wrong, Scudder races to track the deviants through the backstreets of New York City before they kill again.
A Walk Among the Tombstones is out in September. The film stars Dan Stevens, David Harbour and Boyd Holbrook, with Scott Frank directing.
