Neeson rushes in

08.13.2008

neesLiam Neeson likes to mix in "prestige" movies when he's not teaching ninja techniques to Bruce Wayne, cutting up stupid robots or killing the shit out of European kidnappers. Looks like it's time to get serious again.

Neeson will rejoin his KINGDOM OF HEAVEN co-star Orlando Bloom for an upcoming drama based on the book "FOOLS RUSH IN" by American writer/filmmaker Bill Carter, who lived in Sarajevo at the height of the 1992-95 siege of the Bosnian capital (the city was shelled for more than three years by Serb forces).

Brazilian Andrucha Waddington is directing, and Javier Bardem will play a supporting role. Between this and LINCOLN, sounds like Oscar could be heading to the Neeson house in a year or two.

Extra Tidbit: Neeson and Bloom were also rumored to pair up in Johnny To's remake of Melville's LE CERCLE ROUGE -- not sure what's going on with that.

Flashback

Whenever he's in a movie that I am watching I can't help but flash back to him as the original DARKMAN kicking ass, even though he's come a long way since then, that was my first glimpse of him so that sticks in my mind

True, he's usually cast in a father-figurey role, but he sells it every fucking time. Neeson is a great actor, and he's one of the few actors that I always find watchable, no matter what he's in.

Let me guess

He's playing the same role he's played since Oskar Schindler. The father figure role. Sometimes he goes bad, sometimes he doesn't...
