What does it take to direct Liam Neeson in an action-packed, gunslinging adventure? Just ask Rob Lorenz.
Lorenz (American Sniper) directed The Marksman, a cat-and-mouse thriller starring Neeson as an ex-Marine on a mission to protect a young boy from a vicious drug cartel.
In this exclusive new clip, Lorenz and more of the creative team take you behind the camera of The Marksman.
In The Marksman, ex-Marine and hardened Arizona rancher Jim Hanson (Neeson) simply wants to be left alone as he tries to make a living on an isolated stretch of borderland. But everything changes when he witnesses 11-year-old migrant Miguel (Jacob Perez) and his mother (Teresa Ruiz) fleeing from a band of assassins sent by a ruthless drug cartel. After being caught in a shoot-out, Miguel’s mother begs Jim to take her son to the safety of their family in Chicago. Defying law-enforcement, Jim and Miguel hit the road and slowly begin to forge an unlikely friendship, while the cartel’s relentless assassins blaze a bloody trail, hot on their heels.
So, will you give The Marksman a shot? (See what I did there?) It’s hard to go wrong with Liam Neeson kicking ass, right? Let us know in the comments.
