Liam Neeson interview: Unknown, Taken 2, Krull, Star Wars, Darkman and more

2 March 2011 7:51 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

With action thriller Unknown out in cinemas this week, we chat to actor Liam Neeson about his greatest geek films and the possibility of a Taken sequel…

I'm actually at a slight loss as to how to introduce Liam Neeson. He's a magnificent actor, who's been in my life for decades, always defying expectations and as adept at portraying heartbreak in the likes of Love Actually as he is at breaking bones in Taken.

His geek credentials run far and deep, from John Boorman's Excalibur back in 1981, as one of the heroic thieves in the mighty Krull, playing the redneck brother to Patrick Swayze and Bill Paxton in Next Of Kin, as the tormented Peyton Westlake in Darkman, before a tremendous dramatic run including Schindler's List, Nell, Rob Roy and Michael Collins led him to become a Jedi Knight in The Phantom Menace.

The list of Neeson's towering performances is incredible, »

Peter Yates obituary

10 January 2011 4:00 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Versatile British film director known for Bullitt, The Deep and Breaking Away

The director Peter Yates, who has died aged 81, helped Steve McQueen achieve iconic status with the cop movie Bullitt (1968), enjoyed a massive box-office success with The Deep (1977) and made one of the most beguiling of all youth movies in Breaking Away (1979). He maintained a steady career throughout five decades, initially in the theatre and then in mainstream cinema, but he suffered the critical neglect so often accorded those who tackle a variety of subjects and genres and become known, somewhat disparagingly, as journeyman directors.

Pauline Kael described him as a competent director "with a good serviceable technique for integrating staged movie action into documentary city locations". David Thomson suggested that, in America, Yates had "done nothing more profound than send hubcaps careering around corners". Bullitt's famous San Francisco car chase (later revived by Ford as part of »

Rip Peter Yates

Peter Yates, director of the classic cop tale Bullitt, has died. Yates passed away January 9th, 2011 in London, aged 81. Yates' work also included the sci-fi Krull, The Deep and the thriller, Suspect. Working from 1963 right up to 2004, the director has enjoyed a long and healthy career and leaves behind one of the most kick-ass car chases in cinema history. For anyone who hasn't seen it, right now would be a great time to pick up Bullitt, featuring the legendary Steve McQueen.

Peter Yates 1928-2011

10 January 2011 6:34 AM, PST | FilmJunk | See recent FilmJunk news »

Well, last week we passed along the unfortunate news that Pete Postlethwaite had died [1], and now this week Hollywood has lost another Pete. Peter Yates, director of such classics as Bullitt, Murphy's War, and the Jay Cheel favourite Krull has passed away after a long illness. He also directed The Friends of Eddie Coyle, which turned up at the top of Ben Affleck's list of best heist films [2] just a few days ago. He was 82 years old. Yates had a long and fruitful career and directed a wide variety of films in a number of different genres starting with Summer Holiday starring Cliff Richard and The Shadows in 1963. In addition to some of the classic crime films for which is best known, he also directed Peter Benchley's The Deep, Suspect starring Cher and Dennis Quaid, Year of the Comet, and Mother, Jugs & Speed starring Bill Cosby, Harvey Keitel and Raquel Welch. »

Bullitt director Peter Yates dies aged 82

British director of Summer Holiday, Breaking Away and Steve McQueen film Bullitt has died after long illness

Peter Yates, the four-time Oscar-nominated British director of Bullitt, Breaking Away and The Dresser, has died in London after a long illness. He was 82.

A graduate of the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art whose first film as a director was the lightweight Cliff Richard and the Shadows vehicle Summer Holiday, Yates made his name with the action-packed 1967 crime thriller Robbery, a dramatisation of the great train robbery. Hollywood beckoned, and Yates's first Us effort, Bullitt, featured the first car chase in the modern style, with star Steve McQueen himself taking the wheel for a large part of a bravura extended sequence in which his Ford Mustang slaloms and chicanes through the streets of San Francisco.

Academy recognition came later in Yates's career with the 1979 coming-of-age tale Breaking Away. The comedy about four working-class »

Peter Yates, Four-Time Oscar Nominee, Dead at 81

Filed under: Movie News, Cinematical

There's just something about the "old guard" UK film directors that makes them so memorable. A filmmaker like Peter Yates might not be mentioned all that much these days, but to a certain generation of film fanatics his was always known as a reliable name. That's not to say that all his films were classics, but even on the lighter or even sillier projects, there was a competence and confidence that most British filmmakers exhibit. Call it work ethic or class, but Peter Yates was one of those guys. The 81-year-old passed away over the weekend in his native London.

Oscar-nominated twice as a director (for the excellent 'Breaking Away' and the unfairly forgotten 'The Dresser') and then once again as a producer on both films, Mr. Yates had a colorful career of hits and misses, but one never got the »

Peter Yates, a director of distinction, passes away

10 January 2011 12:17 AM, PST | Corona's Coming Attractions | See recent Corona's Coming Attractions news »

Late Sunday evening the news broke on Nikki Finke's Deadline that director Peter Yates had passed away. He was 82 and suffering from what the site only refers to as a "long illness."

Yates was one of those names on the periphery of becoming an A-list director, fully competent in his craft but never quite breaking through into the next level. While I'm on the border of speaking ill of the man's work (and I truly don't mean to do a disservice to his memory), as I look back at his resume, few of Yates' films ever stood out and most feel trapped in the eras in which they were made. Still, even though several of his films themselves aren't memorable or well regarded today, I always felt that Yates was able to impart a certain kind of classiness and sophistication to his work. That made his pictures stand out from »

Peter Yates: 1928-2011

9 January 2011 11:26 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Peter Yates, the man who brought us Bullitt, Breaking Away, The Dresser and the mighty Krull, has died at the age of 82.

Some really sad news here to start the week. Peter Yates, the director of Bullitt, Summer Holiday, Breaking Away and The Dresser, has died at the age of 82.

Nominated for four Oscars across his extensive career, Yates started off working with Cliff Richard before taking on a diverse collection of movies across his 40 years of directing movies and TV.

He also helmed a real Den Of Geek favourite, Krull (a film that this writer enjoyed more than once at the cinema), as well as episodes of the TV shows The Saint and Danger Man.

Plus, spare a moment for the likes of Robbery, The Hot Rock, The Deep and Suspect. Few directors can jump genres convincingly, yet over the course of his career, that's just what Yates managed. »

R.I.P. Peter Yates

9 January 2011 9:52 PM, PST | Deadline Hollywood | See recent Deadline Hollywood news »

Deadline has learned that English film director and producer and 4-time Oscar nominee Peter Yates -- who helmed such celebrated and dissimilar films as Bullitt, The Friends Of Eddie CoyleBreaking Away, Suspect, and The Dresser -- has passed away in London after a long illness. He was 82. A graduate of the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, he was a stage actor before working as an assistant director for Tony Richardson. Yates' feature directorial debut was the early 1960s low-budget Summer Holiday (1963) with Cliff Richard And The Shadows. He soon graduated to the 1967 crime thriller Robbery, a fictionalized version of Britain's The Great Train Robbery. It was a short jump to his first American film, Bullitt (1968), starring Steve McQueen in one of the definitive cop movies of all time thanks to that car chase through the streets of San Francisco. Other films he directed included John and Mary (1969), Murphy's War »
