Maggie Grace and Famke Janssen both returning for Taken 3

Looks like the family is staying together. TAKEN 3 will reunite Liam Neeson with his on screen ex-wife and daughter as both Famke Janssen and Maggie Grace are on-board for the sequel. While we all know the famous "set of skills" scene was in reference to saving his daughter in the first film, Neeson's character was tasked with rescuing his ex in the sequel. Both films were box office hits, so what will become of the Mills clan the third time around?

Forest Whitaker has been in talks to join TAKEN 3, but so far only Janssen and Grace are officially on board alongside Neeson. With TAKEN 2 director Olivier Megaton returnin as well, there may be some special treats coming in what is being called the "final" TAKEN film. I would likely expect diminishing returns as Neeson has made numerous movies that have similar sets of skills to TAKEN (UNKNOWN, NON-STOP), so TAKEN 3 will really need to reinvent the formula is audiences are going to be expected to shell out for tickets.

TAKEN 3 is expected to shoot this year for what I would expect to be a Neeson Season release date in early 2015.

I enjoyed both films, and saw them at the theater. It will have to be a good story as this is the third time for the family, but if it works for Mission Impossible hopefully it will work here too. We will see!

I didn't think the second film was as bad as many did. It paled in comparison to the first, sure, but it was serviceable. I do want to see Kim legitimately kick ass alongside her dad, as thembones has suggested.

HOPE THIS PERFECT OPPORTUNITY IS NOT LOST

This shouldn't be the last Taken movie. It should be an opportunity, if she is willing, to turn Maggie Grace into a female version of her dad and having her learn the special set of skills and take it to the next level. It would be so cool, kind of like Le Femme Nikita meets Columbiana.. A dynamic female lead like that doesn't hang for very long and watching Maggie kick the crap out of some dude who thinks she's just a sweet girl would be so very cool.

They should make the plot for this one revolve around Neeson and his team of friends from the first two films. That would definitely change the dynamic for this new and final film.

I have a feeling that this supposedly last Taken film will be much better than the last entry.

Come to think of it, his group of friends from the first film was very underused.
