Liam Neeson Taken 2

The new act in Liam Neeson’s career that began with 2008’s Taken has made it hard to remember that he was in stuff like Kinsey just a couple years before that. It turns out, Liam Neeson killing lots of people is exactly what the movie-going public needs this time of year, after a long winter and irritating award-season political sniping. Now Kevin Costner is getting in on the act, with 3 Days To Kill, from EuropaCorp, the company behind Taken and such other notable titles as the Transporter series. It remains to be seen whether Costner’s effort will meet with Neeson-like glorious success or falter like EuropaCorp’s John Travolta (From Paris With Love) and Zoe Saldana (Colombiana) vehicles. Until then, let’s consider 11 actors we’d like to see go the Neeson route:

Vampire Academy

In a year devoid of Twilight installments, it’s up to another intrepid film franchise to step in and fill the void it left for sexy teen vampires to stomp all over real-life squealing teen girl hearts. Enter Mark Waters‘ Vampire Academy: Blood Sisters, a film based on a popular paranormal YA series about (not sparkly) dhampirs, half human/vampires attending a private high school and just trying to live normal lives. I say “normal” in an “attempting to be human” aspect, because these kids all look like they just waltzed off the set of Gossip Girl or that party in Pretty in Pink where they tell Andie she’s poor. One of the gossip dampirs, Rose Hathaway (Zoey Deutch), has been tasked with protecting the others from sinister, immortal vampires – it’s her legacy. Her other classmates, played by Danila Kozlovsky, Olga Kurylenko, Joely Richardson, Sarah Hyland, and Gabriel Byrne, do not seem to appreciate this one bit. High school is really hard for everyone. I say it’s up to you to decide whether it’s time for more vampire/dhampir action, or if the wounds that Edward and company have left in our hearts (necks?) are too fresh to move on to a new crowd. Check out the trailer for yourself after the break.
