Seth MacFarlane Wants to Remake ‘The Naked Gun’ with Liam Neeson in the Lead Role

Liam Neeson might soon be stepping down from his perch atop Action Dad Mountain, but what might the next phase of his career look like? Could we be entering the era of Liam Neeson: Comedy Star? In a recent interview, Neeson revealed that Seth MacFarlane, the man behind Family Guy and the Ted films, has approached him to star in remake of the 1988 comedy The Naked Gun. But is the star of Taken and The Commuter the right fit for a movie like that? “I’ve been approached by Seth MacFarlane and Pa...

Exclusive: Liam Neeson reflects on Excalibur’s 40th anniversary Well before he would take to the stars as a Jedi Master or fight across Europe to save his daughter from kidnappers, Oscar nominee Liam Neeson could be found in the hills of Ireland for one of his breakout roles in 1981’s medieval fantasy epic Excalibur.

Box Office: Liam Neeson’s ‘The Marksman’ Ends ‘Wonder Woman 1984’ Reign

If time is a flat circle, then it’s only fitting that a second Liam Neeson movie is ruling over the U.S. box office during the pandemic.

Liam Neeson Once Again Says He’s Retiring From Action Movies

Liam Neeson has had a strange career. For the longest time, he was thought of as a serious dramatic performer – the type of actor who starred in titles like Schindler’s List. Then came Taken, the 2008 flick that inexplicably turned Neeson into an action hero. Ever since Taken, Neeson has stuck with his action star status – a move that sometimes backfired, like when the bleak drama The Grey was incorrectly marketed as a movie about Neeson fist-fighting some wolves instead of the harrowing medita...

Liam Neeson Says He Would Bring Back Qui-Gon for Obi Wan Series

Liam Neeson Says He’d Be Up to Bring Back Qui-Gon for Obi Wan Series Liam Neeson doesn’t say much, but when he does he speaks volumes, especially when talking about anything Star Wars related. In this case, the man gave a rather brief affirmative when asked if he would be willing to return as Jedi master Qui-Gon Jinn in the upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi Disney+ series. “Sure, I’d be up for that, yeah,” Neeson told Collider.

‘The Marksman’ Review: The Latest Liam Neeson Action Movie Aims for the Heart

It’s not a good time for much, but weirdly enough, it is a very good time to be a Liam Neeson fan. While DC-heads just had to watch its latest offering on their televisions and Marvel-stans don’t really know when they’re likely to see Black Widow, Liam Neeson has starred in not one, but two theatrical offerings during the pandemic: first the generic and boring Honest Thief and now the much better but still pretty generic The Marksman . Congrats to you, if your favorite films invol...

‘The Marksman’ Trailer: Looks Like We Got Ourselves Another Old Man Liam Neeson Action Movie

There’s been a long stream of movies featuring Liam Neeson in aging action star mode that began with Taken back in 2008, and the actor is still going strong.

But when a young immigrant child on the run ends up in his care, he takes it upon himself to fend off the drug cartel assassins who are on his trail. The Marksman Trai...

Liam Neeson doesn't steal much more than your time in 'Honest Thief'

By the standards of Liam Neeson thrillers (and there are a lot from which to choose), "Honest Thief" is pretty weak tea, a passable, low-octane action movie that doesn't do much more than steal one's time. Like second-tier John Wayne westerns, Neeson offers enough of what his fans want, but a thin script and stilted dialogue make the battle harder than usual.
