Liam Neeson has been associated with many things, but he is probably best known for his roles in “Schindler’s List” and the more recent “Taken” trilogy. However that is going to change because Liam Neeson has bagged a role that one would not imagine him doing. He has been roped on to give the voice for God in a new advertisement, which aims to promote “To-do things” for the planet.
According to Guardian, an advertisement featuring Liam Neeson as the voice of God will be shown in cinemas around the world and will aim at promoting new global goals for sustainable development that will be unveiled by the United Nations in September. The project is said to be the brainchild of Richard Curtis who’s also responsible for giving us feel good and light hearted movies like Bridget Jones’s Diary and Notting Hill.
The movie will aim at spreading message about poverty, injustice and fighting climate change to 7 billion people in just over seven days. The ad that will be releasing in September will truly be the first of its kind Global cinema venture and is being backed by Sawa, a global cinema advertising association. Curtis hopes that everyone in the world gets to know about the “to-do list” that the movie will be featuring and that everyone will be able to understand what message the ad is trying to deliver. He also hopes that everyone will laugh, enjoy, share and act after watching it.
With #wehaveaplan already been decided upon, cinema goers in about 30 countries will be able to see the ad. On the other hand, Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales has offered to translate the goals in over 293 languages so that the message can be widely understood. The goals themselves that were accepted by 193 leaders range from varied topics like ending hunger, women’s rights to encouraging the use of renewable resources.
