Chris is a Senior News Writer for Collider. He can be found in an IMAX screen, with his eyes watering and his ears bleeding for his own pleasure. He joined the news team in 2022 and accidentally fell upwards into a senior position despite his best efforts.

The Big Picture Liam Neeson is an acclaimed dramatic actor and, in his later years, an icon for his work in the 'geri-action' genre but he's taking a step into a world that will be unfamiliar to many of his fans. Neeson is set to step into the iconic shoes of Leslie Nielsen's Frank Drebin in the highly anticipated reboot of The Naked Gun.

"Well, obviously, the script has got to be funny and have a kind of a theme, a kind of a story, albeit quite loose, going through the script rather than just a series of gags, which can get boring very, very quickly. Yes, I'm honored to be offered the part of Frank Drebin, and a little bit nervous about it because I've done a couple of skits before that were just very short TV things, but this would be, I don't know, 95, 100 minutes of a film.

"I'll do my own thing. I remember Leslie very well," said Neeson. "I love those films. Especially that first, Airplane! You know, “Don't call me Shirley.” Just that line alone, I think, changed Leslie's career up until he passed away."

Freshman House Rep. Leads Democrats' Effort to Ban 'Zombie Guns'Freshman House Rep. Maxwell Frost (D-FL) is heading up the Democrats’ latest gun control push by seeking to ban “zombie guns.” The “zombie gun” moniker is one that Frost applies to guns that were not destroyed after being “retired by law enforcement” or taken in via gun buybacks. The Zombie Gun Loophole is a problematic way that guns can end up in the hands of those responsible for gun violence. We must close this loophole and destroy zombie guns now. Every life lost to gun violence is one too many. The existence of “zombie guns” comes within years of Democrats telling the world about “ghost guns,” which is a description they gave to guns assembled from parts kits or various parts of other guns.
