But let’s get it from Liam Neeson, via Bleeding Cool. The actor was on the show hosted by Jonathan Ross in the UK, and explained “They called me up and I said “I’ll do it… but only as long as nobody gets taken.”
Neeson didn’t give up any more details, perhaps having been well-conditioned by the Christopher Nolan PR machine. Luc Besson and Robert Mark Kamen scripted the film, and we know that Maggie Grace, playing Neeson’s daughter, will also be back for a third turn. Kamen had actually explained this “no taking” policy for the third film back in 2012: “We’ve taken everyone we can take — it’s going to go in another direction.”
Then why are we calling this movie Taken? Isn’t it time for a new name?
I’m telling you, this is not going to end well.
