Liam Neeson Plans to Quit Action Flicks in Two Years

Liam Neeson needs a break from the non-stop action.

After all, in the past handful of years, he’s starred in three “Taken” films, “A Walk Among the Tombstones” and a movie that is literally titled “Non-Stop.”

He tells “The Guardian” that he plans to cool it on the action flicks within the next few years.

“Maybe two more years. If God spares me and I’m healthy. But after that, I’ll stop [the action] I think,” he tells “The Guardian”).

That’s not to say that Neeson is bored in his career, but “there is a limit, of course.”

The limit has less to do with his desire to do other things and more to do with the fact that he’s 62 years old, but he already has a plan for what’s next.

“And I’ll start playing dads or grandfathers. But I keep myself pretty fit and my knees are still great. And it’s fun,” he told “The Guardian” in a previous interview.

Fear not, because he’s still playing a deadly mobster in “Run All Night,” a new thriller coming out this spring.
