‘Taken 2’ Will Be The End Of Liam Neeson’s Time On Film?
The rumor train has left the station on yet another movie. This time it is for ‘Taken 2’ and involves actor Liam Neeson. In an interview, Liam tells MTV news that he “couldn’t envisage a storyline that would warrant a sequel”. This means that he is not at all interested in making a ‘Taken 3’. However, Famke Janssen, Liam’s co-star in the films, says a different story. She says that she would love to be back because she could use the money. Who could blame her right?
With those who didn’t know, Director Olivier Megaton of the ‘Taken’ franchise has always wanted to make ‘Taken’ into a trilogy. Can’t really say we blame him since it seems that trilogies make the most in the Box Office. However, with the news that Liam Neeson might be dropping out from the potential third film in the series, it worries a lot of people.
The premise of the second part of the series is that Bryan Mills (Neeson) is being kidnapped rather than his daughter like in the first. His wife Lenore (Janssen) is also kidnapped. Thus, this is why the actor really can’t see a 3rd in the series.

With the movie being released tomorrow, there are already fans eager to see the 60-year-old action star in action with the characters they fell in love with. The great action scenes in the first really set the bar as to what this is going to do to entice the audience to even want a third in the series.
Although the position of Neeson still stands with a “I don’t know”, the actor is just not that energetic of doing a final ‘Taken’ film. In his mind, it has already ended. Many fans feel that it would be a huge lose to the franchise and that they are going to have to do everything they can to make sure that the Irish actor stays on for another one.
The ‘Taken’ franchise has been an interesting change from the rehashing of fairy tales and robots in the last few years and many fans feel that they would be left heart-broken. Do you feel that they have another one in them to finish off with a bang?
