THR reports that Swedish-American actor Joel Kinnaman (The Killing, Snabba Cash, Safe House) is in final talks to take a supporting role in Jaume Collet-Serra's thriller All Nighter. The Liam Neeson vehicle setup at Warner Bros. focuses on an aging hitman (Neeson) who is forced to take on his brutal former boss to protect his estranged son (Kinnaman) and his family. The son which would be played by Joel witnesses a murder and is targeted for elimination.
Joel was last scene in Safe House and is looking at his own possible franchise with the Robocop remake coming out early next year. This will be the third film that director Jaume Collet-Serra and Liam Neeson have worked on. Firstly, the amnesia thriller The Unknown and plane hijack thriller Non-Stop which co-stars Nate Parker (an actor to keep an eye on).
