The actor-and-rapper has signed up to appear alongside the legendary actor in a new action thriller from Warner Bros., according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The film centres on an aging hitman who finds himself entangled in a bitter feud with his former boss - played by Ed Harris - in order to protect his son, to be played by 'The Killing' actor Joel Kinnaman.

The movie will be produced by Roy Lee, Brooklyn Weaver and John Middleton.

Common currently stars on Western TV show 'Hell on Wheels' and previously starred in a slew of movies including 'Smokin' Aces', 'Wanted', 'Now You See Me' and 'Terminator Salvation'.

Neeson recently signed on to reprise his role as Bryan Mills in 'Taken 3', the latest instalment in the hit abduction thriller franchise.

Kinnaman, meanwhile, is a rising star in Hollywood and plays the lead role in 2014's reboot of 'RoboCop'.

Jimmy (Neeson), a lonely alcoholic and associate of gangster Shawn Maguire (Harris), is broken by regret for his sins, but when Maguire puts out a hit on Jimmy's son Michael (Kinnaman), we know what'll happen: Liam Kicks Ass. Solid, watchable actioner with fine work from Neeson and Kinnaman; no classic but satisfactory.
