“Taken” to Get A Sequel?

By our guest blogger, Matt Jussim

Liam Neeson says a sequel to his surprise hit revenge thriller "Taken" could be in the works.

The actor tells MTV News that he and writer/producer Luc Besson have discussed ideas for a possible follow-up, but nothing is set in stone quite yet.

Said Neeson: "It is hard to get a plot that's going to be believable.” Later this month, he added that he and Besson are "going to sit down and see if we can hash it out."

The low-budget film was released in mid-2008 internationally and in January last year in the U.S. Not only did it get decent reviews, it ended up taking $226 million globally.

I loved “Taken.” I thought Neeson was fantastic, but even more than that, I left the theater feeling satisfied. Sure, it wasn’t the best ‘film’ I've ever seen, it didn’t win any awards, but it did come through with allowing me to be entertained.  Hopefully, if they do come out with a sequel, it will be just as good as the first.
