Neil Jordan is directing the flick, with others starring in it including Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Alan Cumming, Danny Huston, Ian Hart and Colm Meaney.

Neeson (69) plays private detective Philip Marlowe in the movie, who is hired to find the ex-lover of a glamorous heiress.

It appears to an open and shut case, but Marlowe soon finds himself in the underbelly of Hollywood’s film industry and unwittingly drawn into the crossfire of a renowned Hollywood actress and her ambitious, subservient daughter.

Neeson and Jordan’s most famous work together was Michael Collins, in which the northerner played the slain Irish military figure.

They also worked together on Breakfast on Pluto.

Jessica Lange (72) has won two Oscars, for Best Supporting Actress in Tootsie (1983) and Best Actress in Blue Sky (1995).

She has also won Tony and Emmy awards, most notably for American Horror story.

German/American Diane Kruger (45) first came to prominence in the National Treasure films

Englishman Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (45) has starred in The Bourne Identity, Oz, Thor and The Mummy Returns, as well Killer Croc in Suicide Squad.

American Danny Huston (59) has featured in several films such as Wonder Woman and Angel Has Fallen, and is a half-brother of Angelica Huston.

Liverpudlian Ian Hart (57) has also previously worked with Neil Jordan on Michael Collins, and among his film roles has been Professor Queirrell in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone.

Scotsman Alan Cumming (56) has appeared in Goldeneye and is a Tony award winner.

Dubliner Colm Meany (68) has appeared in a series of films based on Roddy Doyle’s books, including The Commitments, The Snapper and The Van.
