Neeson in the Dark on Lincoln Biopic
The Abraham Lincoln biopic has been in development hell since like forever, and its star, like the rest of us, is in the dark despite comments from Steven Spielberg himself at the Golden Globes that the film is coming together really quickly.
“I don’t know (anything) other than what you know,” said Liam Neeson during the Taken press junket in Los Angeles. “He asked me four years ago would I play this part and I most certainly said I would. He’ll do it whenever he’s ready to do it, but it’s in the works.”
Neeson added that he hadnt seen any script yet, nor did he know how young Spielberg wanted the actor portraying the former American president to be. It can be noted that Lincoln was 56 when assassinated, the same as Neesons current age.
