Nate Parker has been cast in the action thriller Non-Stop.

The actor will star alongside Liam Neeson in the Jaume Collet-Serra-directed film, Variety reports.

Not much is known about Non-Stop, but it apparently centres around an air marshal (Neeson) who must deal with an in-flight crisis.

Parker will play a passenger who comes to his assistance.

He was mostly recently seen in Red Tails with Cuba Gooding Jr, Spike Lee's Red Hook Summer and Arbitrage alongside Richard Gere.

Parker will next appear in the American remake of Oldboy and Ain't Them Bodies Saints.
