Liam Neeson Talks A WALK AMONG THE TOMBSTONES, Collaborating with Scott Frank, and More

     September 18, 2014


Opening this weekend is director Scott Frank‘s crime thriller A Walk Among the Tombstones.  The film stars Liam Neeson as a troubled ex-cop who investigates the kidnapping of a heroin drug lord’s wife, teaming up with a heroin trafficker (Dan Stevens) and his brother to hunt down the men responsible for the crime.  Unlike his Taken role where Neeson is nearly impossible to pin down, A Walk Among the Tombstones takes place in the real world, where the characters need to use their brains and not rely on an endless supply of bullets to get the job done.  Frank has a number of great credits as a screenwriter (Minority ReportOut of Sight), and he did great work directing The Lookout.  I’m happy to say I really enjoyed A Walk Among the Tombstones and definitely recommend checking it out this weekend.

During my video interview with Liam Neeson he talked about why he wanted to be part of A Walk Among the Tombstones, how his character can’t kick everyone’s ass like inTaken, how he collaborated with Scott Frank on the character, and more.  Hit the jump to watch.

  • What was it about the project that got him involved?
  • How the character can’t kick everyone’s ass like in Taken.
  • How did he work with Scott Frank to create the character?
