Tony Award winner Frank Langella will join Liam Neeson, January Jones and Diane Kruger in the new film Unknown White Male, according to Variety. Jaume Collet-Serra will direct from a screenplay penned by Oliver Butcher, Stephen Cornwell, and Karl Gajdusek.

The paper reports that the film's story centers on a man (Neeson) who awakens from a coma to find that someone else has assumed his identity, and no one, including his wife (to be played by Jones), believes him. With the help of a young woman (to be played by Kruger), he sets out to prove who he is. Langella will play Cole, who comes forward as the man's colleague.

Langella received an Academy Award nomination for the film version of Frost/Nixon, for which he won his third Tony Award. He also received Tony Awards for his work in Seascape and Fortune's Fool. His most recent film is The Box. His forthcoming films include the Oliver Stone-directed Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps and the Andrew Jarecki-directed All Good Things.

Neeson is also set to co-star opposite Russell Crowe and Elizabeth Banks in The Next Three Days. His Broadway credits include The Crucible and Anna Christie, both of which earned him Tony Award nominations, and The Judas Kiss.
