Here’s the first trailer for Liam Neeson’s new movie A Walk Among The Tombstones, based on the bestselling crime novel of the same name. Neeson plays a gruff former cop who now operates as a private investigator, until he gets in over his head with a particularly brutal case. The film is helmed by Scott Frank, who previously worked as a writer on The Wolverine and the upcoming Assassin’s Creed movie.
Audiences will be able to take A Walk Among The Tombstones on September 19.
Based on Lawrence Block’s bestselling series of mystery novels, A Walk Among the Tombstones stars Liam Neeson as Matt Scudder, an ex-NYPD cop who now works as an unlicensed private investigator operating just outside the law. When Scudder reluctantly agrees to help a heroin trafficker (Dan Stevens) hunt down the men who kidnapped and then brutally murdered his wife, the PI learns that this is not the first time these men have committed this sort of twisted crime… nor will it be the last. Blurring the lines between right and wrong, Scudder races to track the deviants through the backstreets of New York City before they kill again.
