Musicians-turned-actors has been a popular fad for quite some time now. Dipping into the wrestlers pool isn't too far behind. Rapper Common has been appearing in movies and TV shows for almost a decade now. He was last seen in the magical heist drama "Now You See Me", and now he is in negotiations to star alongside Liam Neeson in "Run All Night".
Neeson plays an aging hitman in the film, forced into one last job with his cruel ex-boss (Ed Harris) in order to protect his estranged son (Joel Kinnaman) and family. If the deal is locked, Common would play the most revered killer on the team employed by Harris.
Brad Inglesby is penning the script and Jaume Collet-Serra is directing the action thriller, who has previously worked with Neeson on "Unknown".
