Liam Neeson and Olivia Wilde love the nightlife, they've got to boogie, on the disco 'round, oh yeah.
Vulture is reporting that Neeson no longer needs to prove how tough he is by fighting wolves, Greek gods, aliens, Batman, etc, so he's content to dance the night away with Wilde in a geographically eclectic new drama from writer/director Paul Haggis ("Crash").
Wilde plays a New York City party reporter in a relationship with Neeson (that's called a life of sacrifice, people), but they're not necessarily the only lovebirds in this nest.
Said Haggis, "It's about three story lines, three love stories, three relationships in three different cities that combine in a very odd way: New York, Paris, Rome."
This will be the lovely Wilde's second collaboration with Haggis after a supporting role in his last outing, 2010's "The Next Three Days." "Third Person" is the third project announced for Neeson in as many days, after confirming his reprisal of Ra's al Ghul in "The Dark Knight Rises" and his willingness to defend stewardesses in airline thriller "Non-Stop."
As for the other two more international segments of "Third Person," who could Haggis have in mind? Penelope Cruz would be a natural for the Italian segment, as evidenced by her blending in pretty well with the natives in the trailer for "To Rome With Love." For the French sequences, well, we heard this dude Jean Dujardin is pretty good …
