A Walk Among the Tombstones News

Book To Screen: What Changed And What Stayed In 'A Walk Among The Tombstones' "The challenge is to translate the feel of those novels into something visual, and then from a story standpoint, the moves in these stories are very small," writer/director Scott Frank told us about bringing Lawrence Block's 1992 book "A Walk Among The Tombstones" to the big screen. "...And the challenge is to make those little moves feel big enough that they warrant a movie. Once upon a time you could.

‘A Walk Among the Tombstones’ Review: Liam Neeson’s Talking Smack on the Phone Again Universal Pictures Liam Neeson‘s recent career resurgence as a mature action star has been moving along at a fast clip these past few years, and one constant through films like Taken, Taken 2 and Non-Stop (aside from the fisticuffs, respectable budgets and boffo box-office) has been his characters’ penchant for talking tough on a cell phone. The talk mostly consists of warnings, threats and promises for the evil-doers on the other end of the line, but it has quickly become part of his invincible hard-ass repertoire. A Walk Among the Tombstones challenges that persona in many ways.

Interview: Scott Frank Talks 'A Walk Among the Tombstones,' The Western He's Dying To Make, And More Although the trailers and other marketing materials being utilized to sell "A Walk Among the Tombstones" will have you believing that it's another run-of-the-mill Liam Neeson thriller, it is not. The movie is intricate and beautifully done, with one of the finer Neeson performances in recent memory and a twisty- turny crime movie plot (based on a Lawrence Block novel of the same name) and nary a superhero in sight.
