Taken 2: Retaken?
Lots of people showed up earlier this year to watch Liam Neeson shoot, punch and generally stomp the guts out of the Euroscum who kidnapped his daughter in TAKEN.
The expected response to a $145 million box office take is, of course, a sequel. Screenwriter Robert Mark Kamen already mentioned he was kicking around story ideas, but Luc Besson and EuropaCorp have officially initiated development on a follow-up.
No details have been mentioned, but we'll assume that Neeson's globetrotting badass and his particular set of skills will be back -- maybe as some kind of kidnapping retrieval expert or slave trade disruptor? Or will his gawky teen daughter actually managed to get grabbed again?
