    "Bayona is a real cinema talent. Occasionally, you get to work with directors who are steeped in the love of what they do, and Bayona is one of those. He's a walking film encyclopedia. He's a bit like Martin Scorsese in that way," Liam Neeson said in a statement.

    "He's also very sensitive. He takes care of, guides, and nurtures his actors and that's what I always hope a director will do. He allows you to experiment, so you both can get at the truth of what a scene is and he will try for as long as it takes. I love working with a director like that," said Neeson

    A Monster Calls is a movie that falls in the category of fantasy drama. Directed by JA Bayona and distributed by Focus Features. Apart from Liam Neeson, it also features Felicity Jones, Lewis MacDougall, Sigourney Weaver, Geraldine Chaplin, and Toby Kebbell in major roles.
