  • Liam Neeson in action movie Taken

"The thrillers, that was all a pure accident", he told The Associated Press.

Somebody call Key & Peele to break the news as gently as possible-their boy "Liam Neesons" has announced an official end to his late-career action movie period.

Neeson added, "They're still throwing serious money at me to do that stuff". "Audiences are eventually going to go: 'Come on'". "But not 'Taken, ' none of that franchise stuff". In Hard Powder, he plays a snow-plough driver who faces off with drug dealers, and The Commuter, with director Jaume Collet-Serra, who directed Neeson in Unknown, Non Stop and Run All Night.

Sadio Mane appeal 'a waste of time', claims Klopp
Accidental unsafe play should remain a sending-off offence, but not further punished with a one- or three-game ban. Janusz Michallik and Alejandro Moreno discuss Sadio Mane's red card and whether or not intent should have mattered.

Those of you distraught that Neeson won't be wielding a gun on-screen again can take comfort in the fact that he's already shot two revenge thrillers that are yet to be released.

However, things began to turn in a different direction in 2005, when Neeson played antagonist Ra's al Ghul in Christopher Nolan's Batman Begins, which presumably led to Hollywood evaluating the then 53-year-old actor in a different light.

The Commuter is set for a January 12, 2018 release, and while January is typically considered a dumping ground for awful movies, my hope is that this will serve as counter-programming to the unwatchable dreck that's normally in theaters at that time.

Liverpool boss Klopp makes a huge admission about Philippe Coutinho
Pace in behind causes them particular problems, and Sevilla have a number of rapid forwards capable of exploiting that weakness. Lovren could be back for Klavan, while Joe Gomez will likely replace Trent Alexander Arnold, who had a awful game on Saturday.

The Oscar-nominated actor has now turned to more serious, dramatic fare, starting with "Mark Felt: The Man Who Brought Down The White House", which will be released on September 29.

He plays the character nicknamed Deep Throat - an Federal Bureau of Investigation official and Washington Post's source in the 1972 political scandal.

Neeson has also lined up to co-star in "Widows", by "Twelve Years a Slave" director Steve McQueen.
