“The thrillers, that was all a pure accident,” Neeson said of becoming Hollywood’s most reluctant action hero thanks to Taken and its sequels raking in close to a billion dollars at the box office.

“They’re still throwing serious money at me to do that stuff. I’m like, ‘Guys, I’m sixty-f***ing-five.’ Audiences are eventually going to go, ‘Come on.’”

However, Neeson has two more Taken-like revenge thrillers in the can: Hard Powder, in which he plays a snowplow driver who tussles with drug dealers, and The Commuter, starring as a businessman who becomes caught up in a criminal conspiracy while commuting to the office.

After these are released, Neeson promises, he’s done with action movies. “I’ve shot one that’s going to come out in January sometime. There might be another. That’s it,” Neeson said. “But not Taken, none of that franchise stuff.”

Meanwhile, Neeson’s latest flick — which premiered at TIFF on Monday night — is pretty much action-free; he plays the title role in Mark Felt: The Man Who Brought Down the White House, focusing on the White House whistleblower known as “Deep Throat.”
