Liam Neeson Quits Spielberg’s “Lincoln”

Though he’s been attached for many years, Liam Neeson has revealed to GMTV via Digital Spy that he’s no longer involved in Steven Spielberg’s long-gestating “Lincoln” biopic.

“I’m not actually playing Lincoln now. I was attached to it for a while, but it’s now…I’m past my sell-by date” said Neeson during a talk show interview. The actor is probably referring to age – Neeson is 58 and Lincoln died at 56.

The film is also a long way off from production with Tony Kushner’s script still undergoing revisions. Spielberg is committed to shooting “War Horse” next.
