Liam Neeson Signs on for “Taken” Sequel

Liam Neeson has officially signed on to star in the sequel to Taken. It was earlier reported that he might not agree to film the sequel because he wanted to take a breather, but it appears that he and writer Luc Besson have settled their differences.

After finishing up Wrath of the Titans, Neeson will relax for the remainder of 2011. Deadline Hollywood relays that production for the Taken sequel might begin at the end of the year or the beginning of next year. Sean Bean, Ralph Fiennes, Jason Isaacs, Mickey Rourke and Ray Winstone were on Besson’s list of actors who might have stepped in for Neeson if he’d decided to leave the project. 

It’s not surprising that Neeson would work something out with Besson. After all, this is the role that got him back to prominence in Hollywood. Additionally, the film series wouldn’t be the same without him. In fact, it might as well not be a sequel to Taken without Neeson in tow.
