Liam Neeson has revealed that he's working on a film script with U2 frontman Bono.

The Ballymena-born actor said that he and Bono have an idea for making a film which has been in the pipeline for years.

Neeson told The Independent :"We chat, or with him a lot of the time I just listen. 

"He's a wonderful man. He's got an idea for a script which we've been working on for the past six years."

The film centres around the Irish showband phenomenon in the 1970s.

It is not yet clear if Neeson would star in the project.

The Taken star can currently be seen in A Walk Among the Tombstones.
