You may remember me expressing some interest in Christian film director Norman Stone (see here).
I have now heard from this source firstly the amazing news that Liam Neeson- talented actor -was set to play King Aidan, who apparently would have given him some ‘fiery clashes’ with Jeremy Irons. Secondly comes the sad news that he isn’t going to do the film even though he reportedly ‘loved the script’.
His wife did die last year, but I suspect this may be the film company using it as an excuse for not being able to get him. He’s been quite happy to work on Hollywood’s remake of ‘The A-Team’ so maybe my explanation is correct.
To round off, would anyone like to guess what Neeson and Irons actually have in common?
Highlight to reveal: THEY’VE BOTH VOICED LIONS IN FILMS WITH THE WORD LION IN THE TITLE. LIAM: ASLAN (THE LION THE WITCH AND THE WARDROBE), IRONS: SCAR (THE LION KING)
