Taken 2 is a go with Colombiana director

May. 5, 2011by: Paul Tassi

With the amount of cash that Liam Neeson's TAKEN hauled in, you shouldn't act surprised that there's going to be a sequel.

It's been in the works for some time, but the debate has been over whether or not director Pierre Morel would return. He's not, but fortunately Luc Besson is still scripting it and obviously Neeson is starring.

Rather the new man behind the camera is Olivier Megaton, which I pray is his real name, because that would be amazing. He's previously helmed TRANSPORTER 3, which had the distinct honor of being marginally better than the horrendous TRANSPORTER 2, and also COLOMBIANA.

That film stars Zoe Saldana as a kick ass chick bent on revenge. As luck would have it, that trailer just debuted, and you can catch it below. What is it with girls going on killing sprees in movies these days? I love that they literally have the line "she's just a girl" in there.

So, you excited for more TAKEN?

Extra Tidbit: Fun fact, if you just hit "stop" right after the page loads, you can bypass Variety's idiotic paywall.

Taken2 will be terrible. Megafag is going to shit all over it. Trans3 was about as bad as Trans2. Statham gets no justice. I hope Neeson pulls out after he realized what a fuckin' trainwreck Taken2 is turning out to be.

EDIT: That was cruel, I know. I can give Megaton another shot. Look at Louis Leterrier, sure Trans2 was shit, but he did make Unleashed.

I loved Taken, but the title Taken 2 just doesent have enough zing. What about Taken 2: The Takening?

Once in a while, Saldana looks a little too much like Don Cheadle for comfort.

im so done with...

girls who weigh under 100lbs, picking up and firing guns that weigh 25lbs and have huge kick back not being moved at all, and then kicking the crap and throwing guys who weigh 200lbs all around, you suspend disbelief in Tomb Raider or Kick-Ass but not in movies like these that want to be taken seriously, completely ridiculous

Dunno

I thought Transporter 3 was the biggest piece of shit, and the worst of the trilogy. I'll reserve judgement until the trailer hits.

As long as Liam Neeson is back, im game... but it will be hard to have the same investment his character had in the first movie, because it was his own daughter, I am curious to the plot of this new movie.

As for Columbiana, looks pretty good.. and Zoe Saldana is one of the hottest females there is, so that is a plus!

Good trailer. Columbiana was such a hard R script; if the movie is PG-13, you are being ripped off. Remember that.
