This upcoming Liam Neeson film is pretty much a movie version of a ‘Simpsons’ episode

In his upcoming movie Cold Pursuit, Liam Neeson plays a Snowplow driver on a violent quest for revenge. Sound familiar?

That may be because the plot of Cold Pursuit is kind of similar to the plot of the “Mr. Plow,” episode on Season 4 of The Simpsons. 

In “Mr. Plow,” Homer opens a Snowplow business named Mr. Plow when a blizzard hits Springfield, only to be run out of business by the local barfly Barney Grumble and his slightly bigger Snowplow, The Plow King. 

Journalist David Itzkoff posted a thread of tweets pointing out some pretty glaring similarities between Cold Pursuit and “Mr. Plow.”

“I know we all joked that Cold Pursuit was just Mr. Plow The Movie, but…come on,” Itzkoff wrote. 

Barney and Neeson are both pretty trigger happy Snowplow drivers. 

In “Mr. Plow,” Homer was given the key to the city by Mayor Quimby. In Cold Pursuit, Neeson’s character wins an award for “Citizen of the year.” 

Both Cold Pursuit and The Simpsons involve violence and driving across beautiful snowy landscapes.

Other Twitter users chipped in with their take on this unexpected Cold Pursuit/Simpsons crossover. 

A lot of them are in reference to Homer’s famously terrible tv commercial jingle.

If turning a Simpsons episode into a movie works out well, Neeson may just have discovered a goldmine.
