Taken 2 plot revealed

US release date also confirmed

 
The tremendous success of Taken guaranteed a sequel and it seems as if Liam Neeson's character will be butting heads with more bad guys in Taken 2 around this time next year. 
 
While we can't officially reveal when that hard hitting film will be in your local multiplex, we do know when the Yanks will be getting it and that's normally a pretty good guide: 5 October 2012. 
 
After all, we're unlikely to get it ahead of the US - as we did with the first film - now it's become a successful franchise. 
 
Olivier Megaton (The Transporter 3, Colombiana) will be sitting behind the camera, while Luc Besson and Robert Mark Kamen share scriptwriting duties again. 
 
There's also now a plot synopsis for the film...
 
“Liam Neeson returns as Bryan Mills, the retired CIA agent with a particular set of skills who stopped at nothing to save his daughter Kim from Albanian kidnappers. When the father of one of the kidnappers swears revenge, and takes Bryan and his wife hostage during their family vacation in Istanbul, Bryan enlists Kim to help them escape, and uses the same advanced level of special forces tactics to get his family to safety and systematically take out the kidnappers one by one.” 
 
Seems like Neeson has the same way of attracting trouble as John McClane does in Die Hard movies. The stories those two could tell over a beer! 

Surprised it's taken this long to get a sequel off the ground? Can Neeson and Besson/Kamen strike gold again? Tell us below!

      Really enjoyed the first one. The plot to this sounds a bit naff but I'll still give it a chance.

      Taken was great. Olivier Megaton - ugh. He ruined the Transporter franchise, and based on what I've read of Colombiana, hasn't gotten any better at directing since. I fear the worst.

      Olivier Megaton?! The only way this could stand a chance of being any worse, is if Uwe Boll was lined up to direct.

      This script remindz me about how Die Hard became ridiculously unbelieveable... if they wanna do it right, they should hav Neeson's character goin' back n2 tha seedy European Underworld for a friend or aquaintance who iz caught up in a more dangerous human trafficking ring connected to politicianz etc... he's done it b4 n succeeded, it'z quite plausible that he would b called on again...

      I agree with the above, Mr. Megaton ruined The Transporter, he will probably mess this up buy trying to up the violence anti. The reason the first one was so good was because Bryan mills was just an ordinary guy, lets hope he keeps it on that track, then he might not mess it up to bad. Let's hope Besson is leaning over his shoulder!
