Liam Neeson Interested In A Michael Collins Sequel Film
Actor Liam Neeson has said that he would like to do a sequel about Michael Collins from the time when Collins was negotiating in London with the British government over Ireland’s partition.
Speaking to Collider Magazine the actor revealed: “I would have loved to have seen that process of him sitting down with Churchill. He became very, very good friends with the Minister of Defense.”
“The story of Collins is that, when he goes to negotiate with the crème de la crème of the British cabinet at that time, he was a soldier and he begged not to be sent over there.”
