From there, Liam and Micheál are forced to work together to spruce up the property while working through emotional reminders of the past.

But it is not all heartache as the clip also teases a budding romance for young Micheál with the film’s tagline asserting: ‘The past is set in stone but the future is a blank canvas.’

Speaking to EW about how he landed the role, Liam said: ‘[It] came about not through an agent shoehorning you into doing a script because it will show another facet of your career.

‘James D’Arcy got in touch with me through my English agent and she said “Listen, I think you should read this, there’s something to it.” 

‘I did and I sort of fell in love with it, and she said, “Maybe this is something good for you and Micheál, your son.” And so it was kind of fate, I just felt like I had to do it.’

The drama-comedy is set to be released on August 7 despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. 

The release comes after the heart-breaking news that Liam’s mother Katherine ‘Kitty’ Neeson passed away – just one day before the actor’s 68th birthday.

Kitty, who was in her 90s, died earlier this month in her home town of Ballymena in Country Antrim, Northern Ireland.

The announcement of her death was made at mass at All Saints Church in Ballymena, with the service broadcast on Facebook due to the regulations surrounding coronavirus

Ballymena Daily reports the Parish Priest, Monsignor Paddy Delargy, said of her passing: ‘We pray for those that died recently….and Kitty Neeson. Her funeral arrangements will be later.’ 

While the Mayor of Mid & East Antrim Borough Council, Cllr Peter Johnston, added: ‘Very sorry to hear this news. 

‘As Mayor of Mid and East Antrim, I will be raising this at full council on Tuesday where we will be holding a minute’s silence. Rest in Peace, Kitty.’

Kitty is said to have lived in Ballymena’s Broughshane Road for quite some time, with Liam being a Freeman of the borough.

As well as the Taken actor, cook Kitty also had children Elizabeth, Bernadette, and Rosaleen with husband Bernard ‘Barney’ Neeson.

MailOnline contacted Liam’s representatives for comment at the time. 

Kitty’s passing comes 11 years after Liam’s wife Natasha Richardson tragically died in a skiing accident in Canada.

Relatives of the 45-year-old actress made the heartbreaking decision to switch off her life support machine in 2009 after saying their final goodbyes after doctors told them there was no hope. 

An autopsy concluded that Natasha, who took a tumble during a skiing lesson, had died from a build-up of blood in the brain known as an epidural haematoma.

Rita Ora was at it again on Thursday, as she took to Instagram to flaunt her beach body under the Ibiza sun.

The singer, 29, donned the same gold sparkling bikini she showed off her figure in on Wednesday, as she continues to enjoy the white isle with her new boyfriend Romain Gavras.

She worked her angles in the shimmering gold swimwear, proudly flaunting her tanned and toned figure as she posed up a storm.

Never one to scrimp on accessories, the Radioactive singer complemented her barely-there ensemble of choice with a collection of necklaces, earrings and bracelets.

She swept her golden locks up in a white kerchief and added large shades to the look. 

The Kosovo-born beauty added a bold pop of rouge to her pouty lips.

She wrote under the images: ‘Why am I so annoying?’

She also shared a snap a friend posted, wearing a black and white scarf as a mask amid the global health crisis. 

Aptly, her pal adorned this with the fire emoji for good measure.

A day earlier, Rita was seen keeping the good times rolling as she enjoyed a DJing session with her pals on the Balearic island.

The chart-topping singer was in her element as she took to the decks to play Jamaican artist Ishawna’s Equal Rights track in a quirky black bikini.

Rita and her boyfriend are in the midst of their first post-lockdown holiday on the Balearic party island after making the most of relaxed travel restrictions in July.  

The blonde beauty and the Greek-French director, 39, were first seen together last month after a night of partying.

Highlighting her toned figure, the musician turned up the heat in the chic bralet, which featured asymmetric straps across the bodice. 

Rita let loose as she threw her arms in the air before running her fingers through her hair as she jammed to the dancehall remix of Ed Sheeran’s Shape Of You.

The media personality poked fun at her giddy display in the clip, which was originally shared to her hairstylist pal Jade Rae Williams’s account. 

‘Why do I always think I’m Dj? One drink and Rita rozayyyy comes out lol’ (sic), the Hot Right Now hitmaker said.

Speaking to The Sun, friends insisted Rita was involved with the filmmaker after she was seen enjoying a boozy night out with business tycoon Faton Gashi.

A source said: ‘Rita was hitting the town with friends including Faton. But she’s in a serious thing with Romain and properly loved up. It’s the first time she’s been serious with someone in ages.’

Rita’s previous boyfriends include Calvin Harris, Andrew Garfield, Rob Kardashian, musician Andrew Watt and Ricky Hil – the son of fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger.

The star has spent lockdown working on new music while also enjoying time with her friends in the countryside.

Marcel, who has been dating Rebecca, 24, for 14 months and explained: ‘I couldn’t go to the first scan because the hospitals weren’t letting the partners in. So that was a bit annoying!’

However they aren’t taking any chances for the gender scan, as he revealed they have booked a private room so that he is able to attend.  

He said: ‘We’ve booked a private one for Saturday, so when Saturday comes it’s gonna be like, I get to go in and we’re gonna find out whether we’re having a boy or a girl.’

The pair have decided not to actually find out then and there though, but instead will keep it a surprise a little longer: ‘We’re gonna get an envelope with it in there but we’re not gonna find out because we’re gonna have like a little party and do a gender reveal party!’

Although the reality star has admitted in the past that he has no preference to having a boy or a girl, he confessed to changing his mind: ‘I will always say I’d be happy to have either, as long as they’re healthy and they’re happy, but I feel like I’ve been edging towards a boy!’

Explaining why, he added: ‘I think I’ve got five mates who are having kids at the same time as me. We’re calling them lockdown babies because obviously there’s been nothing else to do during lockdown! 

‘I think four of the five are having little boys so there’s going to be one little girl. 

‘So I could have a little girl and she could only have one mate that she could really hang around with properly but then I could have a boy and he could have a little gang, a new Blazin’ Squad!’ 

Oh baby! Marcel announced that his girlfriend Rebecca is pregnant with his first child in July (pictured in 2019)

Talking about the scary incident during the interview, the musician revealed that he has discovered he has Type 1 diabetes and was unknowingly suffering with diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA). 

Diabetic ketoacidosis is a serious complication of diabetes that occurs when your body produces high levels of blood acids called ketones.

The musician shared a video of himself hooked up to wires in a hospital bed as he candidly shared: ‘It’s been a very, very hard few days for me. Thursday was literally the worst day of my life. I nearly died.’

What is diabetic ketoacidosis?

Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) is a serious complication of diabetes that occurs when your body produces high levels of blood acids called ketones.

DKA was first described in 1886 and, until the introduction of insulin therapy in the 1920s, it was almost universally fatal.

Today the risk of death with adequate and timely treatment is currently around one to four per cent.

Symptoms of a DKA episode include nausea and vomiting, pronounced thirst, excessive urine production and abdominal pain.

According to figures just four per cent of people with type 1 diabetes develop DKA each year.

Marcel then thanked fans for their prayers and blessings, he emotionally added: ‘Keep sending them my way because I need them, thank you so much, big love, Marce.’  

In June, it was reported that Marcel had been rushed to hospital amid fears he had  contracted COVID-19, which he has now discovered was actually Diabetic Ketoacidosis. 

The former Blazin’ Squad star was admitted to hospital after ‘violet vomiting and passing out’, according to OK!.

A source told the news outlet: ‘Marcel has been feeling unwell for a few days and didn’t have any energy. One day he vomited violently and then passed out.

‘He’s been admitted to hospital and has a fever and is still feeling weak. He’s been in hospital for two days and they’re still awaiting test results to rule out coronavirus.’

MailOnline contacted a representative of Marcel Somerville for comment at the time. 

Amid the novel coronavirus pandemic, the reality star has been spending his time in lockdown with his stunning girlfriend Rebecca.

While she did not publicly speak of her beau’s hospitalisation, Rebecca did take to her Instagram Stories to repost his most recent snap on the image-sharing platform, along with the caption: ‘Love you.’

Marcel and Rebecca celebrated their one-year anniversary in May, with the muscle-bound musician posting a touching tribute to his belle on social media.

‘Love you so much! We’ve had a mad year, if they only knew! But we’re here about to start the next 365 Let’s Go, I’m so ready.’

For her part, Rebecca uploaded an image of the pair posing for a selfie together in a car, as she stated: ‘Our First Ever Anniversary…

‘It’s been probably the hardest year ever but throughout it all you have been by me and held me up, when I almost lost myself God sent me you and I look at you as a blessing everyday..

‘Anniversary in quarantine but your still making every second special, since midnight actually…❤️ ready for the future my life @marcel_rockyb…❤️.’
