Liam Neeson has revealed that he feels under pressure to shape up - as he has to dive under the sheets with Olivia Wilde.

The Battleship actor will be starring in a forthcoming as-yet-untitled drama by Paul Haggis alongside the Cowboys & Aliens actress and Jude Law, which starts shooting in Europe this autumn.

"I'm doing a movie in September for four weeks with Olivia Wilde. We have some serious love-making to do so I have some push-ups to do," he quipped.

Liam - who previously starred in survival drama The Grey - admitted his choice of co-star may have influenced his decision.

"It's a really interesting part and I get to go to bed with Olivia Wilde! It's a small film. It's a really interesting script," he continued.

"It's a love story between different couples. I play a writer - or at least, I think so at the minute. It's about a writer trying to get over a tragic death that he emotionally tries to access through the characters he writes about. He imagines their reactions to this tragic death of a kid drowning in a swimming pool."

Liam cast doubts over his rumoured appearance in The Dark Knight Rises, where he apparently reprises his role as Ra's al Ghul in the third and final instalment.

"I don't know anything about it, mate. Seriously. I honestly, genuinely don't know anything about it," he insisted.

:: Battleship opens in cinemas on April 11.
