Liam Neeson, special set of skills, daughter in danger, it’s all pretty familiar now. Time to shake things up just enough to bring audiences back. So for Taken 3, now officially called Tak3n, the Neeson character Bryan Mills is in Richard Kimble mode as he’s framed for the murder of his wife. Now a fugitive, Mills goes on the run to preserve his own freedom and watch over his surviving daughter (Maggie Grace) while trying to elude authorities. (Here Forest Whitaker seemingly stands in Tommy Lee Jones as the lead voice of authority.) Watch the Tak3n trailer here.
Taken 2 director Olivier Megaton returns to direct, with Luc Besson and Robert Mark Kamen once again scripting.
Tak3n opens on January 9th, 2015. Trailer via Fox.
