Liam Neeson (who is about to court Oscar this winter, with Martin Scorsese’s decades-in-the-works Silence) and Neil Jordan are teaming up again.
The Northern Irish actor and his Irish Michael Collins director are going to work on The Trainer, the story of a premier horse trainer in west Ireland who loses it all – including his will to live – following tragedy.
His life is basically saved by a young girl named Nadya, a refugee making a new way for herself in a strange new land.
Of course, the two bond over their shared love for equines, especially one that just may gift them the win that they both need.
So...Awards Bait Alert?
You know it.
