Liam Neeson Targets Action Thriller ‘Narco Sub’

Game of Thrones director Brian Kirk has finalized a deal with 20th Century Fox to direct Narco Sub, with Liam Neeson being eyed to star. The project has been in development for several years, with filmmakers such as Tony Scott, Doug Liman and Antoine Fuqua attached to direct at one point. Now that the studio has a director in place, they will focus on securing a deal with Liam Neeson.

The story follows an Ecuadorian drug lord who forces a disgraced Naval officer (Liam Neeson) to navigate a Narco Sub filled with cocaine past the Coast Guard.

Liam Neeson Will Stop Making Action Movies in 2 Years

Following the success of Taken in 2009, Liam Neeson carved out quite a niche for himself as an older action star. His career certainly careened down this path, with the iconic actor appearing in 9 more action-packed thrillers that includ The A-Team, The Next Three Days, Unknown, The Grey, Battleship, Taken 2, Non-Stop, A Walk Among the Tombstones and Taken 3. Now, on the eve of his latest 'geriaction' movie, as some have dubbed them, Liam Neeson has declared that he will stop making action movies in 2 years, if he is able to make it that far.

Liam Neeson was mostly known for his dramatic roles before taking the lead in Taken, having earned an Oscar nomination for his role in Schindler's List. He also appeared in romantic fare such as Love Actually and the biopic Kinsey. But Taken certainly wasn't his first deep into genre fare. One of his earliest movies was the fantasy adventure Krull and he of course portrayed the Jedi Knight Qui-Gon Jinn in Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace, a role he's said he'd like to revisit. He also appeared in Batman Begins as Ra's Al Ghul.
