Liam Neeson Set For New Revenge Actioner - ManlyMovie

Liam Neeson Set For New Revenge Actioner

I thought that Liam Neeson said a while back that he was done with the whole hardass action/thriller thing, which kind of took off for him with Taken and kept rolling.

But Neeson, producer Michael Shamberg and Studiocanal are teaming for the Rocky Mountains-set action revenge thriller Hard Powder.

Neeson will play a man whose son is murdered by pissant mobsters.  Then, probably the best thing that can happen in a manly movie… someone has to pay!

The actions of Nels, played by Neeson, sparks a turf war between a Native American mobster and a vegan mobster named ‘The Viking’.  Sounds like it has all the ingredients for a manly movie to me.  Hans Petter Moland directs, with a filming date set for March in Canada.

    I am a fan of Liam Neeson and I love his career resurgence after “Taken”.
    I know some of the films have varied in quality but he has been this generation’s Bronsonesque older action star and I appreciate him for that.

    Here’s to many more movies where he gets to beat up miscreants and shoot pissants.

    another movie set on the rocky mountains that I would like to see, would be Cliffhanger 2.

    The Viking, huh. Sounds fucking perfect for Dolph Lundgren.

    I don’t think Neeson has had an action movie worthy of him yet…The Grey ? Maybe?. He needs an American classicist but Walter Hill is the last one left and may be past it…That leaves Sth Korea….some of those boys would know what to do with him…. I’d love to see Neeson in a Johnnie To movie…Supposedly it nearly happened ten years ago.
    Didn’t happen of course but unmade films often sound better than the stuff we do get…even if Orlando Bloom might have been part of the package.

    Eh it’ll be watchable like all his action movies are. He’s typecast as an action/revenge hard man now so may as well just roll with it. He beats up pissants and scumbags so well I know i’ll be watching this.
