Liam Neeson Becoming 'An Ordinary Man' and Takes 'Last Stand'
Though his upcoming slate already includes major roles in the board game adaptation Battleship, the Arctic thriller The Grey, the Clash of the Titans sequel and a small cameo in The Hangover 2, actor Liam Neeson will be even busier in the coming years. Variety recently spoke with Neeson about his crowded upcoming slate and the Irish actor revealed two more new projects that are also in his future. Apparently Neeson is committed to a role in Last Stand, another contemporary western from Ji-woon Kim (The Good, the Bad, the Weird) and another indie called An Ordinary Man from Land of the Lost director Brad Silberling.
Last Stand will see Neeson playing a sheriff on the border between the United States and Mexico, and coming from Ji-woon Kim, you can bet he'll be partaking in some wicked awesome action. On the other end of the law, An Ordinary Man will have Neeson playing a fugitive war criminal modeled on former Serbian leader Slobodan Milosevic who's being hidden by his supporters. With so many projects in his future, it's unclear how soon these two recently revealed projects will get off the ground, but both sound like promising prospects for the actor who is still kicking ass at age 58.
