THE ICE ROAD | Liam Neeson’s latest action thriller released in June in US
The trailer has dropped this week for Liam Neeson’s latest movie - The Ice Road. The Ballymena man has been working on his latest badass catchphrase, no longer waxing lyrical about his skillset, Mike the ice road trucker is a simple man who gets straight to the point: "This is personal. Now I'm angry."
Netflix won the U.S. rights for the movie, stumping up $18M for the privilege after seeing a promo.
The story: After a remote diamond mine collapses in far northern Canada, a ‘big-rig’ ice road driver (Liam Neeson) must lead an impossible rescue mission over a frozen ocean to save the trapped miners. Contending with thawing waters and a massive storm, they discover the real threat is one they never saw coming.
Jonathan Hensleigh is at the helm as writer and director of the film. You've almost certainly watched some of his past movies, including Die Hard With A Vengeance and Armageddon.
The Ice Road is set to hit Netflix on June 25 in the U.S., with the run time to be confirmed. There's no word on the film's release in U.K. yet, but hopefully international audiences won't be waiting too long.
