Irish Eye on Hollywood: Neeson’s Back in
Black and White

January / February 2019

As always, there is plenty of news on the Liam Neeson front. Look for the hunk from Ballymena in February 2019 in the action thriller Cold Pursuit, alongside Laura Dern and Emmy Rossum. Then, when things warm up in the summer, Neeson will appear in the latest entry in the Men in Black franchise, simply entitled MIB. This time around, the MIB team shifts to Europe, with a London-based team of alien-chasers saving the world from killer ghouls. Neeson stars in MIB along with Chris Hemsworth, Tessa Thompson and Rebecca Ferguson. Finally, just in case you forgot Neeson has the acting chops to appear in serious cinematic fare, Schindler’s List returned to select movie theaters in December, to mark the 25th anniversary of Steven Spielberg’s epic Holocaust drama. Neeson, of course, played the title character, who saved over 1,000 Jews during World War II. Often forgotten amidst the hype of Schindler’s List is the fact that it was based on a novel by acclaimed Australian-Irish writer Thomas Keneally. ♦
