Liam Neeson is said to be in talks to star in the Naked Gun reboot

Hollywood star Liam Neeson is said to be in talks to star in a reboot of the popular spoof comedy series Naked Gun, according to Deadline.

The American entertainment publication says the 70-year-old Taken star is currently locked in negotiations with Paramount studios with the view that he will play Detective Frank Drebin’s son – memorably portrayed by Leslie Nielsen in the original series.

According to reports, California-born Akiva Schaffer will direct the film, the man behind Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers.

Reboots of spoof crime-thriller comedies have long been encouraged, with films coming out between 1988 and 1994.

Nielsen, who starred in the franchise as detective Frank Drebin, is also known for playing the brave doctor in Airplane!.

The Canadian-born actor died in 2010 at the age of 84.

Ballymena-born Neeson starring in any of the reboots would continue a stellar career of the actor, who is known today for his action-horror films.

Liam is best known for playing the head of the IRA in the 1996 biopic Michael Collins, which was nominated for two Academy Awards and broke box office records.

Last month, it was revealed that he uses the name of the leader of the Irish republic when checking into a hotel. Liam Neeson is said to be in talks to star in the Naked Gun reboot
