Taken 3: director returns, Forest Whitaker linked

News Simon Brew 30 Jan 2014 - 06:43

Olivier Megaton, the director of Taken 2, will be back - along with Liam Neeson - for Taken 3.

Work continues on the upcoming Taken 3, which will see Liam Neeson reprising the role of Bryan Mills for the third time. He's set to be joined once again by Maggie Grace in the role of his daughter, with Luc Besson and Robert Mark Kamen penning the script. We're promised a slightly different story approach this time, so don't be surprised if the film ends up being called Taken 3: Not Taken or something like that.

Anyway, there have been one or two developments here.

Firstly, Olivier Megaton, who directed the really not very good second instalment, has signed up to direct Taken 3. And secondly, Forest Whitaker is being targeted as a new addition to the cast. The film could be before the cameras as early as March.

More news on Taken 3 as we hear it. And a nemo to whoever is in charge of the UK release of the film: stop with the 12A shit this time please. Thanking you.

Taken 3: Where are my keys?

Taken 3: Where's my Nectar card?

The first film was amazing, the second was predictable. You can have too much of a good thing and I'm not waiting with baited breath for this one.

Taken 3: Not interested

Flogging a dead horse with this one. Some films just don't need sequels.

Taken 3:

i kinda of liked the sequel, it gave you the otherside of thing i.e. what happens when kill the hechmen? could have been better ofc


This could actually work if they changed the story. The character is awesome and he just needs something different to do.

I only got round to seeing the second one recently, and really enjoyed it. Obviously not really as good as the first, and a few action scenes where the camera jumped about so much it did my head in, but overall still a great 90 minutes!

Taken 3: Taken the P*ss.

I liked Taken 2 a lot, ok the plot sucked but it doesn't matter, this is the kind of mindless movies you enjoy for fun. It's not a Nolan movie. BUT, Olivier Megaton sucks as a director, the first one was filmed much better. Besson should have chose another director, we have better ones in France.

I think I'll give this a miss.

It'll be rated "U"

Taken 3: The paper boy has forgotten my Daily Express. AGAIN!

Lose people and birth newborns?

Tekken 3 and you'll have my attention!

Hmmm... The second one wasn't very good, and I thought I read somewhere that Liam Neeson said he wasn't going to do any more action films..? Oh well...

Yes, send them a nemo, quick!
