*Common is in negotiations to go heads up with Liam Neeson and Joel Kinnaman in Warner Bros.’ action movie “Run All Night.”

Jaume Collet-Serra is directing the movie, which centers on an aging hitman (Neeson) who is forced to take on his brutal former boss (Ed Harris) to protect his estranged son (Kinnaman) and his family.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Common will play Harris’ most trusted killer, a cool and calculated man who lets nothing get in his way.

The rapper-turned-actor, currently starring on AMC’s “Hell on Wheels,” was last seen on the big screen in the surprise summer hit, “Now You See Me,” the magician heist movie directed by Louis Leterrier.
