Liam Neeson Will Not Rule Out T4ken

Despite the posters for Taken 3 declaring: “It ends here”, Liam Neeson has admitted that Taken 4 could happen if the latest film does well at the box office, even if he thinks the tank may have run dry on the franchise.

“I don’t think [the Taken franchise] can develop any more to satisfy audiences, but you never know. We’ll see. We’ll see how successful Taken 3 becomes.”

Without giving too much away, Taken 3 leaves room for Neeson’s character Bryan Mills to return for a fourth film, but the Irish star thinks for that to happen they have to ditch the “family under threat” formula.

“I can’t see there being a Taken 4 happening unless they take Bryan Mills and put him into something completely different, [a new] scenario with his buddies, you know his little covert group of military buddies.”

If this sounds familiar, it’s not surprising. Both Neeson and director Olivier Megaton said that Taken 3 would never get made while promoting Taken 2.

Neeson told Empire in September 2012, “I don’t think it’s going to happen [Taken 3]. I really don’t. I can’t see a possible scenario where audiences wouldn’t go, ‘Oh, come on…! She’s taken again?’”

Megaton agreed telling Cinemablend, “We want to work with Liam again on another movie, and the priority is to do something else, another movie. I don’t think that it will go on for Taken 3, I don’t see the point. The second one, it was fine, we closed the books.”
