“The Conjuring 2” star Vera Farmiga is coming aboard the Liam Neeson thriller “The Commuter.”
Jaume Collet-Serra is directing the film, marking the fourth collaboration between Neeson and Collet-Serra, who teamed up on last year’s “Run All Night,” 2013’s “Nonstop” and 2011’s “Unknown.”
Byron Willinger and Phil de Blasi wrote the script for Studiocanal and the Picture Company. Shooting is expected to start this summer.
The Picture Company’s Andrew Rona and Alex Heineman are producing. Collet-Serra will also serve as executive producer along with his Ombra Films partner Juan Sola.
Lionsgate bought U.S. rights for “The Commuter” and the “Our Kind of Traitor,” starring Ewan McGregor and Naomi Watts, in November at the American Film Market.
“The Commuter” centers on a businessman caught up in a criminal conspiracy during his daily commute home. Farmiga will play a mysterious woman who boards a commuter train and proposes an enticing opportunity to Neeson’s character.
Collet-Serra, a native of Spain, has been in post-production on Sony’s “The Shallows,” starring Blake Lively. The thriller hits theaters on June 24.
His other credits include the “House of Wax” remake in 2005 and 2009’s “Orphan,” in which Farmiga starred.
Farmiga is repped by CAA, manager Jon Rubinstein and attorney Jodi Peikoff. News was first reported by Deadline Hollywood.
