Just when you thought Liam Neeson's late-career resurrection as a gruff 'n growling action hero may be ready for a break, the first 'Non-Stop' trailer shows up, proving that the man who once played Oskar Schindler has officially transformed into the closest thing the 21st century has to Arnold Schwarzenegger. Not that we'll complain too much -- Neeson is pretty good at making preposterous action movies work and this one looks like another entertaining entry in the "Liam Neeson Kills Everyone" sub-genre.
We'd already known that The CW's 'Arrow' would dip heavily into the DC reserves for its upcoming second season, even integrating a major 'Justice League' character, but has one of Batman's greatest enemies just booked a stay in Starling City? Potential spoilers of an upcoming episode title make an unmistakable reference to a famous 'Dark Knight' character brought to life in the Christopher Nolan film series, but which one?
When 'Taken 2' was released, Liam Neeson spent a lot of time saying that he wasn't up for a third film as he felt another kidnapping incident that could lead to a sequel would be too ridiculous. But money changes everything -- Neeson was just offered a ridiculous sum to return and now 'Taken 3' is a go.
Doesn't it seem like 'Anchorman 2' features everyone and their moms in some cameo or another? Recently it was revealed that Liam Neeson, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler have joined the already celeb-filled cast and now we know the reason for all this star power. Let's just say, get ready to rumble -- newsmen style.
The story of outlaw bank robbers Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow was made iconic in the film 'Bonnie and Clyde,' but it looks like we'll soon be getting a movie that tells the story from the other side of the law. Development is moving ahead on 'Highwaymen,' the story of the Texas Rangers who shot down the infamous couple, and a pair of true badasses are being sought for the leads.
If you make a film that does does over half a billion worldwide and then host the Oscars, it looks like you can get whomever you want in your next project. This explains why Seth MacFarlane's comic western 'A Million Ways to Die in the West' is looking to add Liam Neeson and Giovanni Ribisi.
At this point in his career, Liam Neeson is practically the patron saint of killing as many bad guys as it takes to protect your family, so it makes perfect sense that he's in negotiations to star in 'The All Nighter.' Boiled down to its basic elements, the film sounds like another entry in the "older badass kills countless people after they threaten his family" subgenre. Throw in a few tense cell phone conversations and you have classic Neeson.
