Neeson informed The Unbiased final week how he as soon as walked round with a membership after studying his pal was raped by a black man. He had hoped a “black b**tard” would “have a go at me about one thing… in order that I may kill him.”

“We haven’t bought the cash for that movie, however in the future we’ll,” Lee stated. “However I don’t suppose I’ll be going again to him. He’s too outdated now. That was a very long time in the past. It’s dangerous throughout.”
