Liam Neeson Announces His 'Unretirement'

Liam Neeson Announces His 'Unretirement'

Liam Neeson recently announced that he would be retiring from action movies, but it seems the star has changed his mind.

Mark Felt will release in theaters on September 29, with two Neeson-starring action movies (Hard Powder and The Commuter) coming in 2018.

Speaking at the Los Angeles premiere of his new Watergate thriller Mark Felt: The Man Who Brought Down the White House, the Taken star told USA trade magazine Variety that reports of his action hero demise had been premature.

He told Variety at the premier of his new movie Mark Felt: The Man Who Brought Down The While House reports about the end of his action flick career were no longer correct. "You're talking in the past tense".

"It's not true. I'm going to be doing action movies until they bury me in the ground".


The Irish actor has starred in some of the best action movies of the past decade including Taken, Unknown and Entourage. "Actually, if we do have another it will be, "Please can you take my daughter"?"

He reiterated that sentiment to the Associated Press in discussing his now-former retirement plans.

Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein, who exposed President Nixon's attempts to steal political secrets and cover up his deeds, took issue with the film Mark Felt: The Man who Brought Down the White House, which is to be released tomorrow.

"They're still throwing serious money at me to do that stuff", he was quoted as saying. "Audiences are eventually going to go, "Come on".
