I wonder how many times can someone get Taken? Well apparently Liam Neeson is off to save the day yet again, in the upcoming film, Taken 3.
In a new piece of casting, Deadline understands that Forest Whitaker is in talks to join Liam Neeson and other forest whitakerreturning actors including Maggie Grace. Neeson stars as Bryan Mills, the retired CIA agent who used his brutal skills to track down his daughter after she was kidnapped in the first film, and who was himself taken hostage in the sequel. Deadline’s Mike Fleming Jr reported last summer that Neeson was closing a deal in the vicinity of $20M to reprise his role as Mills. Neeson was a reluctant participant in the first sequel, but got paid in the $15M neighborhood.
Forest Whitaker and Liam Neeson, huh? Where are we going this time South Africa? Wakanda? I wonder if Neeson is going to say “I will find you and I WILL kill you.”, is it just me or am I the only one who snickers when I hear that line?
