Liam Neeson Won’t Retire from Action Movies As He Said

Liam Neeson says he’s now “unretired” from action movies.

 

According to Variety, Neeson was asked on the red carpet for the premiere of Mark Felt: The Man Who Brought Down the White House about his “retirement” from the genre, the actor responded with a laugh:

“It’s not true, look at me! You’re talking in the past tense. I’m going to be doing action movies until they bury me in the ground. I’m unretired.”

In March 2015, the Taken and Non-Stop star said he would likely retire from making action films within two years time. “If God spares me and I’m healthy,” Neeson responded when asked how much longer he could star in action films. “But after that, I’ll stop [the action] I think.”

“I’m in a very, career-wise, great place,” Neeson added in the 2015 chat with The Guardian. “The success of certainly the Taken films, Hollywood seems to see me in a different light. I get sent quite a few action-oriented scripts, which is great. I’m not knocking it. It’s very flattering. But there is a limit, of course.”

And just a couple of weeks ago, Liam told reporters that he felt he was getting too old to lead films where he’s knocking out bad guys and engaging in large-scale battles, despite how lucrative the opportunities are.

“The thrillers, that was all a pure accident,” he said. “They’re still throwing serious money at me to do that stuff. I’m like, ‘Guys, I’m sixty-f—ing-five.’ Audiences are eventually going to go, ‘Come on.’”

For those who want to see more quality Liam Neeson movies of this sort, his comments to Variety are good to hear. The really good news is that he’s already got a couple of these movies on the way. The Commuter, which was directed Jaume Collet-Serra, who Neeson worked with on Non-Stop, Unknown and Run All Night, and is set to hit theaters on January 12 and is an action/thriller that takes place on a train. He also has Hard Powder coming up. That movie sees him as an angry snowplow driver who is seeking revenge on drug dealers who he thinks killed his son. Why retire when more movies like that can still happen?

Movie studios target torrent users over recent leaked screeners

WIRE TELEGRAM: If you have been enjoying any of the latest leaked screeners of Hollywood movies, you may soon receive a warning notice from Hollywood studios. After more than a dozen of high quality DVD screeners were leaked online, the movie studios have sent thousands of warnings to Internet subscribers whose connections were used to share leaked DVD screeners.

The warnings have no immediate consequences for the affected subscribers but are meant to deter pirates from sharing the high profile leaks.

Readers will remember that a movie leaking group, Hive-CM8 had promised to leak 40 high quality Hollywood movie screeners. However they stopped after releasing 14 such screeners and offered an apology to the producers.

Producers for these 14 screeners have started to issue takedown requests to various websites in the hope that this will prevent at least some people from downloading their films without permission. They are also sending takedown notices to individual BitTorrent users.

Paramount Pictures through its anti-piracy partner IP-Echelon is sending notices to websites, “We are requesting your immediate assistance in removing and disabling access to the infringing material from your network. We also ask that you ensure the user and/or IP address owner refrains from future use and sharing of Paramount materials and property,” the notice reads.

Paramount targets downloaders of DVD screeners of both The Big Short and Anomalisa. Roadshow Films uses the same messages to contact subscribers who allegedly pirated The Hateful Eight.

Quentin Tarantino wants to turn The Hateful Eight into a play

WIRE TELEGRAM: At the very end of 2015, The Verge‘s Chris Plante made the case that the aesthetic and structure of Quentin Tarantino’s three-hour cinematic quarantine The Hateful Eight made it feel more like a play than a movie. Now it looks like that may have been the director’s intention from the very beginning. Tarantino told The Wrap recently that he plans to turn The Hateful Eight into a stage play — all he needs to do is write it.

You can’t screen a play in 70mm

Tarantino told The Wrap he plans to begin writing the play in the upcoming months, and also plans to direct. Tarantino has worked on plays before, and apparently Harvey Weinstein tried to convince him to produce the Hateful Eight script as a play in the first place. But Tarantino stuck to the movie concept, saying, “I have the 70mm and I have the snow. So let me do that,” according to The Wrap.

There’s no word on when you might be able to see what The Hateful Eight looks like on a stage, but if you agree with Chris Plante that it’s “a play without substance,” you might not want to.
