Streaming giant Netflix has bought the domestic rights for the upcoming action thriller The Ice Road for a record breaking $18 million.
The film stars Liam Neeson (The Marksman) and follows the events after a “remote diamond mine collapse in the far northern regions of Canada. An ice driver (Neeson) then leads an impossible rescue mission over a frozen ocean to save the lives of trapped miners despite thawing waters and a threat they never see coming.”
Written and directed by Jonathan Hensleigh (Die Hard With A Vengeance, Punisher), The Ice Road also stars Laurence Fishburne (The Matrix, John Wick: Chapter 3).
