Liam Neeson made a snowplow action movie, and Lionsgate has given the film a new release date: February 8, 2019. Per Deadline, the film has Neeson playing a character named Nels Coxman, and really that should be all you need to know. But if you want more info, here goes: Nels Coxman is “a local snowplow operator recently named Citizen of the Year of his small Colorado ski town for keeping the roads open through the winter. Nels’ quiet life with his wife (Laura Dern) abruptly spins out of control when their son is unjustly murdered by a local drug cartel. Taking the law into his own hands with only the tools of an outdoorsman and snowplow driver, Nels sets out to find those responsible but inadvertently ignites a gang war that threatens to engulf the town – unless he ends it first.”
That’s right – Laura Dern is in this too. Just give me this movie immediately. If this (strange) plot sounds somewhat familiar, that’s because Hard Powder is a remake of the 2014 Norwegian film In Order of Disappearance. Hans Petter Moland, who directed the original film, is directing this one as well. In the Norwegian film, Stellan Skarsgård played the main character, and here’s my favorite part – his name was Nils Dickman. That’s right, they’ve updated the character name from Nils Dickman to Nels Coxman.
