There is always an audience for actors in late middle-age who know how to kick serious ass. Charles Bronson was 53 when he made Death Wish, Liam Neeson was 54 when he did Taken and Clint Eastwood was 73 when he did Gran Torino.
I read just the other day that Jeremy Renner may take the lead role in a Steve McQueen biopic.
If it goes forward, I will be very interested to see the end product, but I would not care to be an angel investor.
I look at the new action movies coming out, and I have to wonder: Where's our new Lee Marvin? The manly man, the bad guy turned good guy, the guy who's so ugly he's almost beautiful, the guy who takes no prisoners?
