News arrives via Deadline that Vera Farmiga (The Conjuring) is set to join Liam Neeson in Jaume Collet-Serra's (Non-Stop) The Commuter.
The thriller, which regular Neeson wrangler Jaume Collet-Serra is gearing up to make, sees the actor as a businessman returning home from a day's work who unwittingly gets caught up in a criminal conspiracy that threatens not only his life, but that of those around him. Farmiga is aboard to play a mysterious woman who drags him into the whole affair, offering an enticing opportunity, but one that comes with some deadly downsides...
Writers Byron Willinger and Phil de Blasi cooked up the concept and the producers snagged Neeson's services last year, with Serra following a few months later. Now it is gearing to shoot this summer and the director is currently gathering the cast.
Farmiga has recently worked on indie comedy Boundaries and is attached to a drama called Facing The Wind.
