Samuel L. Jackson really wants to come back to Limerick for a holiday

The baddest motherf**ker on the planet fancies a trip to Ireland.

Given the fact that his films have made a combined total of $1,723 trillion at the box-office, it's fair to say that Samuel L. Jackson is probably more powerful than Thanos.


Granted, the last time we saw Nick Fury was when he was just a pile of ash blowing away into the wind, but when it comes to Jackson's ferocious work ethic, the coolest man alive is showing no signs of slowing down.

In fact, the 70-year-old is busier than ever with upcoming roles in Captain Marvel, Spider-Man: Far From Home, The Banker, and The Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard, but before all that, he's back to reprise one of his most beloved roles.

At the time when Unbreakable was released, M. Night Shyamalan said he was told by the studio that he couldn't pitch the film as a superhero movie because there was no market for comic book films and audiences just weren't interested.

How times can change.

Well, the 2000 film is now heralded as a release that was very much ahead of its time because Shyamalan's grounded take on the comic book genre has only appreciated with age.

Of course, the film tells the story of David Dunn (Bruce Willlis), the sole survivor of a devastating train wreck. Elijah Price (Samuel L. Jackson), a mysterious stranger, offers a bizarre explanation as to why David escaped without a single scratch, an explanation that threatens to change David's family and life forever.

Methodical, intelligent and incredibly calculated, Elijah Price's descent into madness and the persona of Mr. Glass was one of Jackson's most beloved roles.


Well, the iconic actor is back in the purple attire in Glass - you can read our spoiler-free review here - but ahead of the film's release on 18 January, we had the chance to sit down and chat with the coolest man on the planet.

Of course, the star of Pulp Fiction and A Time to Kill is no stranger to Ireland as he frequently golfs here, and it appears that he's a big fan of the golf courses in Limerick.

We presume it's Adare Manor, but who knows?

When asked when he's coming back to these shores, he said: "I wish I knew! If only I could tell you. I've had great times in Ireland. I've also been the sickest that I ever was in my life in Ireland too! Food poisoning from some bad oysters, but I wanna go back to Limerick and play that course again."


Well, looking ahead at the incredible films that Mr Jackson is involved with throughout 2019,  we won't begrudge him a small holiday to the Treaty County.

Glass is released in Irish cinemas on 18 January and here's what's in store.
