MOVIE NEWS – The film marks a reunion between Neeson and director Robert Lorenz, with whom he previously worked on The Protector. This week we learned the first details.
Liam Neeson recently starred in Ice Road for Netflix and is ready to return to his favourite genre: the action thriller. This time he will star in In the Land Of Saints and Sinners, a film that will mark his reunion with director Robert Lorenz (with whom he worked on The Protector). This week we have learned the first details of the film.
Neeson is not giving up action films
Deadline reports that Neeson will play a retired assassin living in a remote Irish village who “becomes embroiled in a lethal game of cat-and-mouse with a trio of vengeful terrorists”. In the Land Of Saints and Sinners is set to begin shooting in Ireland this March and see Ciarán Hinds (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2) co-star in the production.
Although Neeson told Collider in 2015 that he was planning to leave action films after two years, the actor has remained firmly attached to the genre. In 2017, two years after that statement, he told Variety: “I’m going to be making action movies until they bury me. I’m not retired. Nearing his 70th birthday, it’s clear that the actor still has more than enough energy to keep digging into these adrenaline-fuelled offerings.
“I’m going to be making action films until they bury me”.
Several of Neeson’s projects are currently in post-production, including action films: Blacklight, Memory and Retribution, as reported by the media. In the Land Of Saints and Sinners is directed by Lorenz and scripted by Mark Michael McNally and Terry Loane, with Matthew Feitshans revising the script. More details will be released in the coming year. The Protégé did well at the US box office in 2021.
