Liam leaves Spielberg’s “Lincoln” in the lurch


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: This is kind of depressing. Apparently Liam Neeson no longer is attached to Steven Spielberg’s long-gestating Abraham Lincoln biopic.

“I’m not actually playing Lincoln now. I was attached to it for a while, but it’s now … I’m past my sell-by date,” Neeson told GMTV.

That doesn’t make that much sense, giving that Neeson’s currently acting much younger than his actual age (58) in action thrillers like “The A-Team” and “Taken.” And we’d have not trouble believing him in the role of our nation’s 16th president.

Instead, it sounds like Neeson just tired of waiting for Spielberg, who has a habit of announcing titles that take their own sweet time getting out of his overcrowded pipeline. Right now, IMDB has 18 titles listed as “In Development” on the director’s slate. How many of those will see the light of day is anyone’s guess.

In the meantime, Neeson has signed to play another former U.S. president — Lyndon B. Johnson — in Lee Daniels’ civil rights drama “Selma.”
