Bryan Mills is coming back with Taken 3, officially known as Tak3n, and now the first pictures from the movie has arrived, which suggests he’s not going to have calmed down and spend the entire running time knitting.
USA Today has the pics – which feature Neeson, Maggie Grace and Taken newbie Forest Whitaker – and also offers some of our first info on the plot.
This time around Mills is framed for murder, with Neeson saying, “I have to go on the run, I’ll put it that way, from the not-so-lawful types and the lawful authorities. Bryan Mills served his country faithfully, but now even they are after him. They must not like me. This time, no more traveling. If my daughter was ‘taken’ again on a trip, Bryan Mills would have to be certifiably locked up for bad parenting.”
He adds, “Bryan Mills wants to fight quick, using the dirtiest moves possible to finish. It’s not like, ‘Put your fists up, fellow!’ Why fight like that when you can kick someone in the kneecap and be done with it?”
Its’ the first Taken film for Forest Whitaker, who plays a law enforcement agent in pursuit of Mills. he comments,”People are attracted to quiet heroes. Liam’s presence has that. He gives people a sense of comfort and security. And he’s an excellent actor… There’s no big fight between us, which I would have loved. That will have to wait until Taken 4.”
We’re unlikely to get that further sequel though, with Neeson saying, “It’s a rollicking good story. But I think this is the end. If I feel audiences saying, ‘Come on, he’s 62, enough is enough,’ I’m very sensitive to that and if I pick up that vibe it will all stop. And I’ll start playing dads or grandfathers,. But I keep myself pretty fit and my knees are still great. And it’s fun.”
