Liam Neeson to retire from action films

The 68-year-old 'Taken' star says that he'll be retiring soon, after a couple more action films 'in the pipeline'

Hollywood action star Liam Neeson has revealed that he will retire from starring in action films after 2021.

“I’m 68 and a half; 69 this year. There’s a couple more I’m going to do this year – hopefully, COVID allowing us – there’s a couple in the pipeline and, then I think that will probably be it. Well, unless I’m on a Zimmer frame or something,” the Taken star said in an interview with Entertainment Tonight.

Neeson’s latest film is The Marksman, where he plays a former Marine turned solitary rancher who is on a mission to save an 11-year-old boy from a murderous drug cartel gang. His upcoming movies include Blacklight and The Ice Road.

On doing action flicks, Neeson says that “he loves doing them.” “I love beating up guys half my age,” he said.

“The scripts are good. I’m kind of like a kid in a candy store,” he told People (the TV Show!) – Rappler.com
