Liam Neeson to work with Joss Whedon? Sort of…

September 20th, 2014 by Marc Comments

Joss Whedon has written and directed some of our favourite things… but, believe it or not, he has unmade things lying around too and, not surprisingly, they are now hot commodities.

Well, now it seems that one of his unmade projects might have the big man himself, Liam Neeson attached.

According to Comicbook, Neeson has told Empire that “he’s agreed to star in a film called Suspension about a man hanging from New York’s George Washington Bridge. As the publication notes, that’s the title and premise of a spec script that Whedon sold in 1993… The lead character is a troubled cop-killer who gets involved in a Die Hard-style stand-off with terrorists that have put the bridge in danger. He shimmies up and down and around and scoots about and takes control of the bridge and saves the day.”

This sounds like it just might be the best thing ever or is there a chance that Joss wasn’t always a genius? Nah, we don’t think so either. In Joss we trust…

More if we hear it…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
