No One Gets Taken in ‘Taken 3’

No One Gets Taken in ‘Taken 3’
Russ Fischer — /Film

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.
