Liam Neeson Meeting Producer Luc Besson About Taken 2
06.15.10 by BJSprecher
Director Pierre Morel's Taken was one of the surprise hits of 2009, earning 10 times its production budget in worldwide ticket sales. The movie also reinforced that the star of the movie, Liam Neeson, is one badass dude, even in his later years. In the movie, Neeson plays a former CIA spy who dusts off his old skills to rescue his daughter, who was kidnapped while vacationing in Paris. Considering the movie is entirely driven by this simple premise, there doesn't seem to be much room to expand the story, which is why it was so surprising to hear Neeson tell MTV that he is meeting with producer Luc Besson to "hash out" a plot for a possible Taken 2.
