An ‘odd couple’ sci-fi action flick starring Liam Neeson and Joe Keery and penned by Jurassic Park‘s David Koepp? More details on Cold Storage here.

The tradition of the unlikely heroes, thrust together by a situation spiraling out of control, has resulted in some wonderful movies over the years. From Lethal Weapon to Die Hard With A Vengeance, there’s plenty of mileage in the comedic bickering of characters who don’t get on, but simply have to given the situation that they find themselves in.

Of course, casting and chemistry are always key in these situations and that’s why we’re so intrigued by the announcement that Liam Neeson will be starring alongside Joe Keery in Cold Storage, a film that follows a retired bio-terror operative who is forced to join forces with employees in a military facility to prevent an alien virus from leaking into the world.

Nobody does grumpy, reluctant action hero like Neeson and Joe Keery has proved himself already as a brilliant co-star in an ‘unlikely couple’ dynamic. His on-screen relationship with Gaten Matarazzo’s Dustin in Stranger Things is one of the popular series’ greatest joys and as such, we’re interested to see what these two cook up.

StudioCanal is backing the project and Doctor Who and Westworld  director, Jonny Campbell  is helming. Excitingly, the script has been penned by none other than David Koepp, the writer behind Jurassic Park, Mission: Impossible and 2002’s Spider-Man. That’s about all we know right now, and will bring you more details as we hear them.
