Several projects have added cast members this week, so we've compiled the news into one convenient post for your reading convenience.
Just last month, Liam Neeson was officially back for Taken 2, the sequel to director Pierre Morel's highly successful 2009 thriller. Producer Luc Besson has lined up Transporter 3 director Olivier Megaton for sequel, with a script from Taken screenwriter Robert Mark Kamen, and with Neeson back on board, it only make sense to bring back Maggie Grace, who played Neeson's daughter and kidnapping victim in the original.
Deadline reports that Grace's deal for the sequel is finalized, though don't expect her to be "taken" again. Neeson hinted in February that he might be the one that gets nabbed in the sequel. Though the tables may be turned on Neeson, we don't see Grace's character suddenly discovering a "particular set of skills" that allow her to track down her father. more casting news >> Posted 04.08.11 by Ryan
