Liam Neeson closed his deal in March to return as the highly skilled CIA officer in Taken 2, and his on-screen daughter Maggie Grace also signed on for the sequel.
In a recent interview producer Luc Besson revealed Famke Janssen would also be back, and said filming is scheduled to begin in October.
From Coming Soon:
Besson told us that Colombiana director Olivier Megaton has been using his time in Los Angeles to scout locations for the sequel to Taken, which will shoot there for a little bit, and the film itself will start production in October. He said that everyone is back for the sequel including Famke Janssen, who had a small role as Liam Neeson’s ex-wife in the first movie.
No story details have been revealed so we don’t know who gets ‘taken’ this time round, but earlier this year it was mentioned part of the movie would be shot in Istanbul, so some of the action will likely be set there.
