Liam Neeson says he’s done with action movies, but maybe last weekend’s box office numbers give him cause to change his mind

The Marksman, Neeson’s newest, dethroned Wonder Woman in 1984, topped the list at $ 3 million, a huge number considering more than half of the cinemas in the USAS are closed and those that are open have capacity restrictions

There’s no denying that Neeson, who turns 69 in June, remains a huge draw that can get people off their couches even during a global pandemic, his October release, Honest Thief, was named for similar 3 $ 7 million moved and $ 14 million settled before moving to on-demand platforms

When asked last week by Entertainment Tonight if he saw an end to his action hero career, the Ballymena native replied, “Oh yeah I think I’m 68 and a half, 69 this year, I’ll be another year make a few more – hopefully Covid will allow us – there are a few more in the pipeline, and then I think it probably will be. Well, unless I’m on a room frame or something “

Neeson recalled filming a scene in Australia for an upcoming project “I had a fight scene with a kid – a lovely, cute actor named Taylor – and halfway through the fight when I looked up I was breathless and it didn’t cost him a dime and I said, ‘Taylor, how old are you?’ He said, ’25,’ I said, ‘That’s the age of my oldest son!’ ‘One of Neeson’s classics, Unknown from 2011, is a new hit on Netflix, and Neeson says the film is about a professor whose identity stolen could be the basis for a New Series

“I’m glad because I thought it was a pretty cool movie,” he says. “In fact, we’re trying to get a TV series based on the premise of the Unknown story It’s very flattering and nice to hear that after 10 years people discovered this movie “
