The new Irish action thriller starring Liam Neeson is about to hit theaters in select countries, but only if you’re in the United Kingdom or Ireland; you’ll soon be streaming the movie from April 2024 – here’s what you need to know.

The movie is directed by Oscar nominee Robert Lorenz who helmed The Marksman, which also starred Liam Neeson. The script was written by Mark Michael McNally (Now Shoot A Fellowman) and Terry Loane (The Last Rifleman).

The project was initially announced in October 2021; no distributor was attached then.

What to Expect from In the Land of Saints and Sinners

Liam Neeson has been cast as the lead in the movie. Instantly recognizable to tens, if not hundreds of millions worldwide, Neeson is most well known for his work in the Taken franchise, Star Wars, and his Academy Award-winning performance as Oskar Schindler in Steven Spielberg’s Schindler’s List.

Joining Neeson are Ciarán Hinds (Game of Thrones, Belfast) and Kerry Condon (Better Call Saul, Rome) as well as Colm Meaney (The Banker), Jack Gleeson (Joffrey in Game Of Thrones), Desmond Eastwood (Normal People), Sarah Greene (Penny Dreadful), Conor MacNeill (The Fall), Seamus O’Hara (Game of Thrones), Valentine Olukoga (Unforgotten) and Mark O’Regan (Blood).

Per Netflix which states the runtime of the film is 1 hour and 46 minutes, here’s what you can expect from the film:

“A disillusioned hitman comes out of retirement for one last job when an IRA bomber on the run from the law arrives in his sleepy Irish village.”
