After famously replacing Mel Gibson in the popular movie sequel when castmembers objected, Liam Neeson has been cut from The Hangover Part II.
Neeson had already shot his scenes as a Bangkok tattoo artist, but due to scheduling conflicts, the actor had to be replaced himself when the film was forced to do re-shoots.
Director Nick Cassavetes (The Notebook) was called in at the last minute when Liam's work on The Clash of the Titans sequel prohibited him from participating.
â€œWe were in a complete time crunch so I called up Nick and asked if he would do the part,â€ The film's director Todd Phillips told Variety. â€œHe came in and crushed it and that is the scene that you will ultimately see in the film. [Iâ€™m excited for everyone] to see the film. It turned out great.â€
Although re-shoots are never a good sign we have high hopes for this film ... hopefully Mel didn't put a curse on it!
