Liam Neeson's Coma-Movie Plans

Actor Liam Neeson understandably set aside his work in Chloe, which was shooting in Toronto when Neeson's wife Natasha Richardson suffered a fatal skiing accident. His next role?

Neeson would also be excused for withdrawing his name from that project, given the "unfortunate parallel," as the Hollywood Reporter puts it, between the film, Unknown White Male, and Richardson's accident:

Producers had been out to Neeson for the title role, a doctor visiting Berlin who suffers an injury that leads to a coma.

Presumably Neeson, described by the trade as in the midst of a career resurgence, will have plenty of work to choose from when he is ready — and when movie roles might be of some healing value to him.
