Liam Neeson is taking a break from action thrillers to star in the horse drama titled The Trainer.
Deadline is reporting that the actor will be reteaming with director Neil Jordan for the horse training drama titled The Trainer. They had previously teamed up on the period drama Michael Collins. Jordan is also known for directing The Crying Game and Interview with the Vampire. The screenplay is being written by David Donohue, James Villemaire and Todd Komarnicki. Production is supposed to take place in Ireland sometime next summer. Check out the synopsis below.
"Neeson will star as John Moore, a premier horse trainer in the west of Ireland who, beset by tragedy, loses everything he cherishes and almost forgets to live. Into his life comes a teenage refugee, Nadya, who has fled her own horrors and now finds herself in a confounding new world. Their only connection to themselves, and ultimately to their own hearts, is a horse called Allabelle, who is about to prove that they may all have one race left inside of them."
