Pamela Anderson lands starring role in The Naked Gun reboot alongside Liam Neeson - 30 years after iconic franchise with Leslie Nielsen ended

The Canadian-American actress, 56, will star opposite of Liam Neeson in the untitled remake, slated to hit theaters on July 18, 2025.

So far, little is known about the story for the reboot, but it's likely the famed team of writers will cleverly incorporate the 'very particular set of skills' Neeson has acquired while playing his action hero persona of recent years, including Bryan Mills in the Taken (2008-2014) franchise. While fan will have to remain patient to see exactly how far filmmakers will go in lampooning Neeson's own action man image, he takes over for Nielsen, an acclaimed actor and comedian who passed away in November 2010 at the age of 84. The Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada native had a career spanning 60 years, dating back to 1950, during which he appeared in more than 100 films and 150 television programs, while portraying more than 220 characters.
