Taken 2: Retaken?

6 years agoby:

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?

Extra Tidbit: I just hope his crew of "Hey it's that guy" character actors returns to help out a bit more than the first time...

I hope no one gets kidknapped. I hope other kinds of excrements will hit the wall. If they change the title they could do something different.
This is what I would do. Call it Given.
The bos(ses) who's proxys got shot and beat up in Taken go after Neeson.
What's Given then? Goons, revenge, beatings and a whole lot of bullets. Of course Neeson returns the favor, in bulk.

Hmmm

I always thought the reason Neeson was left alone was because the French Govt. didnt want the fact they were doing nothing about the Slave trade to become common knowledge. Persuing Neeson might have shed light on some dark corners they didnt want brightend.

@ solo the hut

He flew over there in his ex-wifes husbands Jet so maybe thats how he returned? But you make a good point hmmmm....anyways a sequal would be awesome if done right, and i dont see how they can get it horribly wrong if its exactly like the first i wouldnt care. Just dont go backwards.

Hmm, I loved the first one, but not sure how they can do a follow up. They can't kidnap his daughter again that would be lame. I could see a prequel.

also on board with prequel idea

I think they should do it as a prequel about his last mission and end it with him getting the call from his daughter.

I'd like to think this time it would be one of his former colleagues would get kidnapped while on a job or something.

I'm all about seeing another movie in this series. Definitely does not need to be or be considered a sequel. I would just love to see another movie with Liam Neeson's character going totally bad ass on some other group of heads... Or the French all over again, it's all good! I think calling it Taken 2 or Re-Taken would be an attrocity for what was such a sick movie. I can't wait to see how this develops.

wonder if neeson's still interested in making movies after his recent family tragedy?

aside from that , i dont mind having another taken movie if he's in.

one thing that didnt make sense in the first movie tho,
is how he got away with all that [link] in europe .. and managed to take a (commercial) flight back to usa without any trouble?!

isnt interpol communicating with the FBI??

isnt he considered a terrorist now??

Down for a sequel as long as the story makes sense or at least works on some level. Man, Neeson was ridiculously badass in Taken. Just RI-DIC-U-LOUS-LY badass.

I think I'm gonna go rewatch it now.

I'd love to see that too, the entire French nation out to get the man who single-handedly destroyed half the inhabitants of Paris.

Don't think it'll happen though. Surrender monkeys.

taken

the film was awsome, it totally kicked butt, I don't think it needs a sequel though it's fine just as it is I 'd hate to see RE-TAKEN in theaters in a couple of years or so then they'll turn it in a Transporter-esque franchise.

the first was entertaining, but nothing special, imo. I'd be up for a sequel though.

Good news

I love the idea of kidnapping retrieval. Although I didn't like his team that much... Will it go Head-to-head with the next Bourne ?

Oh yeah, I'm game for another Taken movie only if Liam Neeson returns. Love that boat shooting scene. Taken was one big surprise movie for me.

Hell yeah!

"MARCO!"

*taps two nails together*

"I NEED YOU TO BE FOCUSED!"

*stabs nails into both his knees*

"ARE YOU FOCUSED YET?!"

......Awesome movie and a sequel is welcome as long as Liam is doing scenes like this.
