EXCLUSIVE: Liam Neeson Is In Talks To Star In Black Adam

According to my sources, Liam Neeson is currently in talks with Warner Bros. Pictures and New Line to star in Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam.

Liam Neeson has been put on the naughty step for the last few years, but it seems as though the world might be ready to forgive him for that interview he did a while back.

I do believe I’ve written about that in the past and made my views on the matter pretty clear.

I think a lot of people took what he said out of context and didn’t really stop to think about the times he was living in whilst growing up in Northern Ireland.

Anyway, controversies aside, Liam Neeson is a terrific actor and many people have gushed about what a pleasure he is to work with on set.

He’s starred in a lot of action movies ever since he wowed and surprised everybody in the very first Taken movie.

Neeson’s gone on to star in a whole slew of action flicks, and many of them were directed by one man, Jaume Collet-Serra.

Neeson and Collet-Serra worked together on movies such as Unknown, Non-Stop, The Commuter and Run All Night.

I’ve now been informed by an insider source that Collet-Serra is very keen to bring Neeson over to Black Adam to star in an undisclosed role.

I wasn’t told which character Neeson is in talks to play.

However, I was assured that Neeson and Warner Bros. Pictures have been in talks and it’s about him starring in Black Adam.

Should he be cast in the movie, it wouldn’t be the first time he starred in a DC Comics movie.

Neeson played Ra’s al Ghul in Christopher Nolan’s Batman Begins.

He never returned as the villain, however, he was brilliant in the movie.

Neeson is also an actor who’s very familiar with starring in huge franchises having played Qui Gon Jinn in Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace.

Incidentally, he recently revealed that he was proud of that movie, and he has every right to be.

He was perfect as the Jedi Knight, and I would love to see him return to the character in one form or another.
