It turns out his latest stint on the big screen is as the iconic detective, Philip Marlowe, created by celebrated American-British writer, Raymond Chandler. The movie, simply titled Marlowe, is the latest iteration of the well-known fictional character. Initially, the character appeared in the 1939 novel The Big Sleep. However, years later, Chandler’s stories headed to the big screen, featuring major stars, including Robert Mitchum, Humphrey Bogart and Elliott Gould.

The latest movie covers the ongoing adventures of Detective Marlowe in an adaptation of the novel The Blonde With Black Eyes. That novel comes from writer John Banville, where he resurrected the detective’s character, first created by Chandler.

Initially, Liam Neeson, 69, was seen shooting for a few days in Blanes, before moving on Monday to the town of Manresa.

Despite strong security measures by the filming crew, as Neeson left the restaurant he was swarmed by fans. As he smiled and waved, they chanted his name, taking photos of him with their mobile phones. In the images, Neeson was impeccably dressed in an indigo blue suit with a matching tie and pocket handkerchief. He also wore Marlowe’s iconic hat and carried a cigar while posing for a short time, surrounded by the vintage cars.

The team next moved on to Sant Cugat and Terrassa, where they spent some hours filming at the building of the Terrassa Regional Business Confederation.
