"Taken" star Liam Neeson who has acted in dozens of action movies has announced his retirement from the action genre.
The 68 year old actor admitted that age had a lot to do with his decision, reports The Independent.
In an interview with ET times, the actor said "Oh, yeah. I think so. I'm 68 and a half. There's a couple more I'm going to do this year – hopefully, Covid allowing us – there's a couple in the pipeline and then I think that will probably be it. Well, unless I'm on a Zimmer frame or something."
Neeson – whose cartel movie The Marksman is out this month – is currently filming action thriller The Ice Road, which follows an ice driver on an impossible rescue mission over a frozen ocean to save the lives of trapped miners.
Then he'll be starring in Memory, which centres on an assassin-for-hire who becomes a target after he refuses to complete a job for a dangerous criminal organisation.
After that, he's due to appear in political thriller Charlie Johnson in the Flames and Marlowe, a movie about a private detective.
