Liam Neeson Battles Bad Guys On A Frozen Lake in 'The Ice Road'

Liam Neeson is back on screen battling the bad guys in the first trailer and images for Netflix’s The Ice Road.

Here’s a summary of the film: After a remote diamond mine collapses in far northern Canada, a ‘big-rig’ ice road driver must lead an impossible rescue mission over a frozen ocean to save the trapped miners.

Contending with thawing waters and a massive storm, they discover the real threat is one they never saw coming.

Laurence Fishburne, Benjamin Walker, Amber Midthunder and Marcus Thomas also star in the film.

Speaking with EW, Liam revealed that they shot the movie on Lake Winnepeg when it had frozen over.

“It’s inspired by the French film, Wages of Fear, which is this classic French black-and-white movie,” he told the magazine. “Our film is set on frozen Lake Winnipeg, where there’s been a collapse up in the mine in Northern Canada and there’s miners trapped. Because of the weather, the only way they can transport the pieces used to extract the miners is by road and these big trucks across Lake Winnipeg.”

He added, “The only thing is it’s the dead of winter, and the ice is usually eight-to-ten-feet thick, but in ours the thaw is happening so the ice is only three feet thick — and so s*** happens.”

The Ice Road will premiere on June 25 on Netflix.
