Liam Neeson isn't chasing down the bad guys in his upcoming film, instead, he's restoring a house and mending a relationship.

The 68-year-old stars alongside real-life son Micheál Richardson in the drama Made in Italy by writer-director James D'Arcy.

It centres on Robert (Liam) an artist who returns to Italy with his estranged son Jack (Micheál) to sell the house he inherited from his late wife. The house is a shambles, and as the pair renovate the house, they also start to repair their relationship.


Speaking to Entertainment Weekly about the role the Taken actor said that James got in touch with his agent who encouraged him to read the script.

"I sort of fell in love with it, and she said, 'Maybe this is something good for you and Micheál, your son.' And so, it was kind of fate, I just felt like I had to do it."
