Liam Neeson to Topline ‘Orphan’ Director’s ‘Unknown White Male’

After the success of Dark Castle’s Orphan, Joe Silver’s company is moving fast on the previously announced Unknown White Male. Reteaming Dark Castle with director Jaume Collet-Serra (who got behind the camera Orphan and House of Wax for Joel Silver’s company), Liam Neeson is negotiating to star in the production slated to begin in January. Neeson will play a doctor who goes to Berlin for a medical conference and gets into a car accident. When he awakens from a coma, he discovers that his wife doesn’t recognize him — and she’s living with another man who has assumed his identity.
