It may have taken them a while to get Taken 2 ready for filming, but it’s now gearing up to shoot, and new cast members are coming on-board to join returnees Liam Neeson and Maggie Grace. The latest to sign up is Luke Grimes, according to Variety.
Grimes is probably best known for playing Ryan in TV’s Brothers & Sisters, but has also appeared in All The Boys Love Mandy Lane (which was his debut) and will soon be in The Wait and Outlaw Country. In Taken 2 he’s set to be Maggie Grace’s love interest, who gets roped into helping her when her parents are kidnapped by the father of one of the bad guys from the first movie.
Olivier Megaton is set to direct.
