Taken sequel to begin filming in October

Liam Neeson returns to “look for you, find you, and kill you”

In conversation with ComingSoon, Luc Besson revealed that the sequel to 2008’s Taken will begin filming this October.

The second outing will see the return of the entire original cast, even including Famke Jannsen, who made a brief appearance as Liam Neeson’s ex-wife.

Besson said that Columbiana director Olivier Megaton has been using his time in Los Angeles to scout shooting locations for the next Taken flick, which will have some scenes filmed there.

Although there’s been nothing revealed with regards to plot details (for a while it seemed like Neeson might not be returning), it’ll be nice to see Neeson back on ass-kicking form as the relentless Bryan Mills.

Needless to say, if something else gets taken from him this time, he really should start taking better care of his belongings/family.

The untitled Taken sequel will film in time for a vague 2013 release.

Are you Taken by the idea of a sequel? What anti-theft investments can you suggest for Bryan Mills? Do tell us below...

      Bryan Mills himself should be Taken!

      Didn't mind the first one in a no brainer action kind of way.. christ it was better than some of the other c**p that came out after (the expendables for one).. also good to see Neeson have a career resurgence and do some a*s kicking.. a sequel isn't really needed though is it? The concept of someone else being "Taken" connected to him is already boring, and they haven't even started filming yet!
