Liam Neeson Won't Be Playing Spielberg's Lincoln

For many years, Liam Neeson was attached to star in Steven Spielberg's Abraham Lincoln biopic, which would reteam Neeson with the filmmaker who helped take him to an Oscar nomination for his role in Schindler's List . The casting seemed perfect because the resemblance is uncanny and Neeson is one of the most respected actors in the industry, but it now looks like the project will have to look for another star.
