Memory: Guy Pearce, Monica Bellucci, Harold Torres, Taj Atwal And Ray Fearon Join Cast For Indie Crime Thriller

Deadline is reporting that Guy Pearce, Monica Bellucci, Harold Torres, Taj Atwal and Ray Fearon will star alongside Liam Neeson in the indie crime thriller Memory.

.

The film focuses on Liam Neeson as Alex Lewis, an expert assassin with a reputation for discreet precision. When Alex refuses to complete a job for a dangerous criminal organisation, he becomes a target and must go on the hunt for those who want him dead. Veteran FBI agents Vincent Serra, Linda Amistead, and Mexican intelligence liaison Hugo Marquez are brought in to investigate the trail of bodies, leading them closer to Alex, but also drawing the ire of local tech mogul Davana Sealman. With the crime syndicate and FBI in hot pursuit, Alex has the skills to stay ahead, except for one thing – he is struggling with severe memory loss, affecting his every move. As details blur and enemies close in, Alex must question his every action, and who he can ultimately trust.
