Neeson Re-enters the Filming World with In the Land of Saints and Sinners

Actor Liam Neeson and director Robert Lorenz teamed up again for their upcoming new actionthriller, In the Land of Saints and Sinners.

As per Screenrant, The filming of this movie took place in County Donegal, Ireland. It follows the story of Finbar Murphy, a former hitman trying to come to terms with his violent past and enjoy a peaceful retirement.

However, when the violence of The Troubles spills into his hometown, he decides to take up arms for one last time. The movie is loaded with an Irish cast, including Liam Neeson, Kerry Condon, Jack Gleeson, Colm Meaney, and Ciarán Hinds.

As the film is being released on 29 March, Screen Rant called Liam Neeson for an interview, during which he revealed his experience in making the action-thriller In the Land of Saints and Sinners.

While talking, the interviewer talked about his favourite scene by saying, ” I love the scene with the character who plays the violin and talks about how he fled his home country because of violence, but that he still loves his home. You can feel that theme of patriotism in this movie.”

Neeson replied by saying, “Just the land beneath your feet, do you know what I mean? You feel identifiable with it, too, you know? Every nation in the world has it. God knows, the conflicts over centuries and centuries, and it still will go on. “This is my land.” “No it’s not, it’s my land. We were here first!” Endless, isn’t it? Every country in the world.”

Liam was asked, “Can you talk a little bit about shooting in Ireland, and where this shooting location relates to where you grew up?”

Neeson stated, “It was shot in County Donegal, which is in the northwest of the island. It’s in the Irish Republic. Where I was brought up, where I’m from, is the North of Ireland, which would be known as The Six Counties.”

“There being 32 counties in total, in all of Ireland. But the six counties are still, politically, part of Britain. Northern Ireland, that’s where I’m from, and I was reared, about 30 miles outside of Belfast.”

He continued, “But, as the crow flies, from where we shot to my hometown, it’s maybe a three-hour drive, maybe less.”
