Actor Liam Neeson is negotiating to star in the remake of the humor classic ‘Run the Police Here’ (1988), starring Leslie Nielsen (1926-2010). The information was revealed by the 68-year-old North Irish star in an interview with People magazine.

“I was approached by Seth McFarlane and Paramount Studios to perhaps revive the ‘Run the Police Here’ franchise,” said Neeson when asked about his upcoming projects.

“It could end my career or take it in another direction. I honestly don’t know ”, thought the actor amid laughter.
