The always dependable Liam Neeson stars as Mike in the new Netflix action-thriller “The Ice Road.”

Here’s the official synopsis:

After a remote diamond mine collapses in far northern Canada, a ‘big-rig’ ice road driver (Liam Neeson) 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.

Take a look at my interview with the actor about his interest in making the film, and how the film’s DNA is taken from Henri-Georges Clouzot’s “The Wages of Fear.”

“The Ice Road” drives to Netflix June 25th.

Laurence Fishburne stars as truck operator Goldenrod in “The Ice Road.”  I spoke with the actor about his interest in joining the cast and his one word answer was…Neeson.

I love Amber Midthunder’s character in “The Ice Road.”  She plays Tantoo, the fierce Cree truck driver who has other motivations.  I spoke with the actress about the making of the film.
