Just when you (and Liam Neeson himself) thought the “Taken” film series would stop at the sequel, the film series now has a threequel and it comes with a twist in the story!
What’s the plot twist, you ask? Well, let’s just say a certain character’s life (we won’t tell until you watch the trailer) is taken away instead of being kidnapped by the baddie! Things apparently get even worse as Neeson’s starring role, Bryan Mills gets framed for the murder of the character!
Titled “Tak3n”, the third and final installment of the Taken film series will put an end to the story about the ex-government operative Bryan Mills, whose life is shattered when he’s falsely accused for murdering his own wife. Mills will once again employ his “particular set of skills” to track the real killer while avoiding the police forces and protecting his daughter from a similar fate.
Regarding the third “Taken” film, Neeson previously mentioned in an interview that he would be in the film unless nobody gets taken (again). Thus, the script has been rewritten by Taken 2 writers and Olivier Megaton has returned to direct the film. Divergent actor Jonny Weston has also joined the cast of the film as the daughter’s boyfriend while Liam Neeson, Maggie Grace, Famke Janssen, and Forest Whitaker will return to reprise their roles.
Oh, you want to know who died in the third Taken film? Just watch the trailer below. “Good luck”.
The film is slated for release on January 5, 2015.
Liam Neeson will also appear in the sequel of Seth MacFarlane’s comedy “Ted” for an untitled film role.
