Billboards for Liam Neeson's new neo-Eurospy flick Unknown are starting to pop up all over Los Angeles, and I'm getting very excited! But I think it's funny how desperate the marketing team at Warner Bros. seems to be to replicate Taken's business. Not only does the Unknown poster look an awful lot like this one for Taken; it even conspicuously uses the word "Take" in its tagline! That noted, I think the movie itself looks awesome. (Watch the trailer here.) And (as previously reported), it's co-written by John Le Carré's son, Stephen Cornwell, so it's got that going for it, too...
Though I post here under the name Tanner, my real name is Matthew Bradford, and I'm a screenwriter living in Los Angeles. I'm coauthor of the graphic novel Night and Fog and I co-wrote and co-produced the 2014 horror feature Dead Within.
