Actor Liam Neeson continues along the upward trajectory his career has been on since Taken surprised everyone at the box office. He recently wrapped photography on Clash of the Titans, in which he plays Zeus, and is currently filming the big-screen adaptation of the classic The A-Team TV show, in which he will portray the team's leader, Hannibal.
Neeson's most recent gig, according to Variety has him starring alongside Russell Crowe in writer-director Paul Haggis' latest film, The Next Three Days.
In Days, an adaptation of the 2008 French film Pour Elle, Crowe plays a teacher whose wife (Elizabeth Banks) has been falsely incarcerated for a murder she didn't commit. Desperate to break his wife out of prison before she can commit suicide, Crowe's character elicits the aid of an ex-con (Neeson) who is an expert on prison breaks.
Days also stars Brian Bennehy, Olivia Wilde, Daniel Stern, Aisha Hinds, and The RZA.
