In a new interview about his new movie Run All Night, Liam Neeson has admitted that he’s close to retiring from the whole action movie thing…
“Maybe two more years. If God spares me and I’m healthy,” he said about his ongoing action hero status. “But after that, I’ll stop I think.”
It was, of course, the Taken movies that turned our native Irishman into an action star – a mantle he seemed born to carry. But alas, he feels that, at 62, he’s a bit long in the tooth for it now: “I’m in a very, career-wise, great place,” he said.
“The success of certainly the Taken films, Hollywood seems to see me in a different light. I get sent quite a few action-oriented scripts, which is great. I’m not knocking it. It’s very flattering. But there is a limit, of course.”
His Run All Night co-star Joel Kinnaman reckons there’s life in Neeson’s career yet, saying: “He’s so physically capable, he’s an old boxer. When he knocks somebody out in the movie, you believe it…”
What about you all? Is Liam too old? Let us know…
