“Hard Powder,” starring Liam Neeson, may be set in Colorado — but it’ll be filming in Canada, according to Variety. Sorry guys, you can’t sneak a picture with the man of the “Taken” franchise unless you buy a plane ticket. 

Mr. Neeson will be playing Nels, “an upright snowplow driver, awarded a Citizen of the Year prize by his glitzy Colorado ski town, whose life is turned upside down when his son is murdered by a powerful local drug kingpin,” Variety writes.

The movie also features “the Viking, a fastidious gangster who wears Tom Ford suits, is a vegan, drives a Tesla and murders people.” So at least the Tesla and vegan parts are regionally (and morally) appropriate.

And if you’re still bummed that “Hard Powder” isn’t being filmed in the state, enjoy this look at movies set in Colorado, but not filmed here.
