After his last critics’ choice “Cold Pursuit,” action hero Liam Neeson is all set to star in the new action thriller “The Minuteman”. The film would be directed by Robert Lorenz (Trouble With the Curve).
As published in The Hollywood Reporter, “The Minuteman” follows a retired Vietnam veteran who finds himself responsible for the life of a young boy being hunted by a cartel.
Just looking at the plotline, we can easily say that Neeson is in his home territory with a role he has justified many times before. Those of us who love his action films would not mind one more – leaving aside his recent racist comment.
The “Love Actually” star Neeson has played many interesting and memorable roles in films, including the “Taken” trilogy (released in 2008, 2012, 2014), “Widows” (2018), “The Commuter” (2018), “Non-Stop” (2014) “Run All Night” (2015) and the latest “Cold Pursuit (2019)”.
While Liam Neeson is known for his action films, he has also starred in films of varied genre, including the biographical drama “Kinsey” (2004), the superhero film “Batman Begins” (2005), the survival thriller “The Grey” (2011) and the historical period drama “Silence” (2016).
While we wait for more information on the upcoming “The Minuteman,” we can certainly expect yet another action-filled film where Neeson’s character would bring his usual action back to screen.
Yes, we can expect something like “Non-Stop” or “A Walk Among the Tombstones“, where he has some special set of skills to beat the hell out of his onscreen nemesis.
Liam Neeson will be back on the big screen in the sci-fi action comedy “Men In Black: International,” set for June 14 release.
