Liam Neeson Says He’ll Retire From Action Movies in ‘Maybe’ Two Years

Liam Neeson, who’s experienced a career resurgence with thrillers like the “Taken” franchise, “Non-Stop” and “A Walk Among the Tombstones,” says he’s nearly ready to get out of the action-movie business.

“Maybe two more years. If God spares me and I’m healthy,” the 62-year-old actor tells The Guardian. “But after that, I’ll stop [the action] I think.”

It’s not the first time the “Run All Night” star has suggested it may be time to retire his special set of skills: Around the release of “Taken 3,” his final turn as Bryan Mills, Neeson acknowledged, “If I feel audiences saying, ‘Come on, he’s 62, enough is enough,’ I’m very sensitive to that and if I pick up that vibe it will all stop. And I’ll start playing dads or grandfathers. But I keep myself pretty fit and my knees are still great. And it’s fun.”

“Run All Night” opens Friday nationwide, but after that Neeson’s plate does appear light on action, with projects like the comedy “Ted 2,” the historical drama “Silence” and the fantasy horror film “A Monster Calls.”
