“This time, no more traveling,” Liam Neeson told USA Today this morning. “If my daughter was ‘taken’ again on a trip, Bryan Mills would have to be certifiably locked up for bad parenting.” Yep, that’s right. They’ve changed the formula of the “Taken” series, with the title being rejigged as “Tak3n.” This time, Mills is the prey after he’s framed for the murder of someone close to him. And since no promotional pics of Famke Janssen have emerged, maybe it’s her?
“I have to go on the run, I’ll put it that way, from the not-so-lawful types and the lawful authorities,” Neeson, trying not to be too spoilery. “Bryan Mills served his country faithfully, but now even they are after him. They must not like me.”
Forest Whitaker joins the series this time as one of those lawful authority types. “There’s no big fight between us, which I would have loved,” Whitaker said. “That will have to wait until ‘Taken 4.’”
An amusing prospect, but that’s probably not going to happen. “It’s a rollicking good story,” Neeson said. “But I think this is the end.” Then again, he said that after “Taken 2”, so who knows. “Taken 3” opens on January 9th via 20th Century Fox. Do you think the series will end here? Let us know in the comments below.
