Rutger Hauer Also Says He's Not Likely To Reprise His RoleAll we know so far about "The Dark Knight Rises" is that Christian Bale will play Bruce Wayne, Tom Hardy will take on the villain role of Bane and Anne Hathaway will purr as Catwoman. But that hasn't stopped speculation from running wild and one of the longest rumors knocking around the film is that Talia al Ghul is one of the major female roles still to be cast. If true, we speculated it would likely mean she would team with Bane to seek revenge on Batman for killing her father, Ra's Al Ghul, from "Batman Begins." Badass Digest recently spilled that according to their sources, Talia will head up The League Of Shadows and Catwoman will fight alongside Batman. And while we'll have to wait to see if that's accurate, Liam Neeson has confirmed that he's not been asked to return for the sequel.

Rats off to ya, “Gnomeo And Juliet.” After two weeks in release, the ‘toon has vaulted into first place, generating $14 million this weekend on its way to a 3D-boosted $100 million+ gross. The Disney Touchstone release, populated almost entirely by British actors, is something of a surprise hit, since it looked like a throwaway purchase along the lines of “Planet 51” or “Hoodwinked.” Consider this something of an anomaly: who knew animated lawn gnomes would generate such business?

If you've seen the trailers for "Unknown," then you probably have a pretty good idea of what it's about and what it'll be like: all those quick cuts of car crashes and blue-tinted European scenery; Liam Neeson again assuming the role of grumpily righteous avenger (something he brought a laser-like focus to in the sleeper hit "Taken"); and a number of tired genre clichés trotted out for the masses (mistaken identities, Soviet-era spies, a potential assassination plot).

Also Has Western 'Last Stand' & 'Clash Of The Titans 2' On DeckLiam Neeson is a very busy man. This year alone he's cropped up in a handful of films, big and small, including "Clash Of The Titans," "After.Life," "The A-Team," "The Next Three Days" and before December is out, he'll be seen in "The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader." In the new year, you can expect to see him in the thriller "Unknown" as well as "The Hangover 2" and while he may not be so omnipresent through 2011, it doesn't mean he'll be any less busy.

Liam Neeson holding a gun on a blue tinted poster only means one thing: it's yet another vehicle for the thespian to show that if push comes to shove and somebody kidnaps his daughter or frames him for a crime he didn't commit or in this case, steals his identity, he is going to unleash some serious ass kicking on faceless enemies in a foreign land.
