All Upcoming Liam Neeson Movies We Are Excited About

Liam Neeson is still going strong at 66. He is one of the most venerated actors in Hollywood. He has been a part of iconic films like Schindler’s List and Taken series.  He earned an academy award nomination for Schindler’s List (Best Actor), he is an Officer of British Empire but more than anything, I admire his struggle (maybe that’s a topic for a different day). The commuter released earlier this year and Neeson proved that ever-young actor still has it in him and will be seen on screen, being a part of these upcoming movies. Despite his achievements, he remains to be one of the underrated actors of all time (Yes you read that right).

At this point, the question that might be circling your mind is what is the next Liam Neeson movie? Well, the good news is that we have a clear answer to that question.
