The movie, which seems a decidedly slower pace compared to the action star's other films, shows the father and son attempting to renovate the dilapidated villa, all while confronting their past.

During an interview, Neeson spoke about landing the role after his agent was approached by D'Arcy, who was interested in the actor for the lead. He said

"James D'Arcy got in touch with me through my English agent and she said, 'Listen, I think you should read this, there's something to it.' I did and I sort of fell in love with it, and she said,'Maybe this is something good for you and Micheál, you son."

The release of the trailer came at the same time that Neeson announced the death of his mother Katherine 'Kitty' Nesson, only a day after his birthday.

The "Taken" actor also lost his wife and mother of his son Natasha Richardson in 2011, after she had a skiing accident in Canada.
