Liam Neeson Reveals Taken 2 Is in the Works
Posted 02.08.11 by Ryan
Putting Liam Neeson in an internationally set thriller is becoming a bi-annual tradition that began with 2009's Taken. It continues with this month's Unknown and into the future with Taken 2, which Neeson recently told MTV is in script stage. Neeson was pleased about the sequel, especially since he didn't initially think that Taken would become a $226 million worldwide hit.
I thought it was a good little B-movie when I first read it. I thought, "This is cool, very simple, maybe straight to video, but it's a good little film, it's a chance to do all that physical stuff." And then it just seemed to hit a pulse in people, it did very very well, which I'm thrilled about, and we're hoping to do another one next year sometime.
Neeson didn't know many details about the sequel, but did hint that it would be Neeson himself that gets "taken" in the sequel. Unknown opens in theaters on February 18.
