Arriving in theaters next month, TAKEN 2 once again centers on former CIA agent Bryan Mills, now in hot water with the murderous mob that brutally kidnapped his daughter a year earlier (and detailed in the original ‘09 film). Directed by OLIVIER MEGATON (COLOMBIANA) from a screenplay by LUC BESSON and ROBERT MARK KAMAN, the returning cast features LIAM NEESON, FAMKE JANSSEN, MAGGIE GRACE, LELAND ORSER and JON GRIES.
Every bit the action movie that the original was, TAKEN 2 finds NEESON running, jumping and taking punches like an actor half his age. During a recent press conference, the actor admitted he’s not as spry as he used to be and credits his stint as a childhood boxer for giving him the discipline to stay in shape.
