Spike Lee says admitted in a recent interview that he would not cast Liam Neeson in any of his movies following his recent racist remarks.
“What a crazy, bizarre world we live in,” Lee said on the UK's 'The Andrew Marr Show.'
“I’ve not spoken to Liam. … I don’t know why he did it, but he did it, so …”
Lee stated that he had tried to cast Neeson once, but the film did not receive funding and even if it did, Neeson would now be too old for the part.
“We haven’t got the money for that film, but one day we will,” he said. “But I don’t think I’ll be going back to him. He’s too old now. That was a long time ago. It’s bad all around.”
He also questioned whether his religion played a part in Neeson's revelation.
“I know he’s Catholic. Is this a form of confession?” Lee said.
