In the past few years Liam Neeson has made a good living out of revenge fantasy thrillers such as The Grey (Neeson vs. territorial wolves), Unknown (Neeson vs. shadowy international conspirators) and The Next Three Days (Neeson vs. the U.S. penal system). But there’s only so much of the man to go around, which is why filmmakers are now turning to his co-stars from other movies to help shoulder the burden.Amanda Seyfried may be best known from 2008’s Mamma Mia! or the recent Red Riding Hood, but she also starred with Neeson in Atom Egoyan’s 2009 thriller Chloe. And she goes full Neeson in her new film.You’ll remember that Neeson kicked off the genre for himself with Taken, in which his daughter is kidnapped. This one is called Gone, and it’s about a missing sister named Molly, played by Emily Wickersham.In the trailer, Jill (Seyfried) finds Molly’s empty bed and leaps into action — and conclusions. “This guy came back for me, he broke into my house,” she says. “Took my sister because I wasn’t there.”Why? “I’m the only one that got away, because I know his secret.” Seems the year before, Jill had been abducted and thrown into a wooded hole that contained human remains — or so she says. The cops never found any evidence, and they clearly don’t believe her.The vengeful dialogue comes rattling out of her. “I’ll sleep when he’s dead.” “I need some information.” “A crime was committed.” “I just wanted to know if you saw anything unusual?” “You know who I am, and I know who you are.” “Where is she?!” “Stay back!” “It’s going to get dark soon and Molly is going to be dead.”Gone was directed by the relatively unknown Brazilian filmmaker Heitor Dhalia and written by Allison Burnett, whose relevant credits include a 2008 film in which Diane Lane tries to track down an untraceable serial killer. That one was called Untraceable.Gone opens Feb. 24 (today) but wasn’t screened in advance for the press, so look for Jay Stone’s review later on — unless someone is kidnapping film critics, that is.You can watch a trailer for Gone at apple.com/trailers.
