Action star Liam Neeson is returning this fall with a very particular set of skills; skills he has has acquired over a very long career. In Taken 2, Colombiana‘s Olivier Megaton directs the sequel, which sees revenge enacted upon Bryan Mills and his daughter (Maggie Grace) needs to save him. EW has our first look at stills from the film, which feature Neeson back in regular, ass-kicking form in the story that takes place about a year after the first film.
He goes into the plot of the film, which sees the relatives of the Albanian bad guys he killed in the 2009 hit returning for revenge and kidnapping Neeson’s character. His daughter will then switch roles and actually help him from being taken. While the first film seemed sort of a one-off adventure, I’ll be interested to see if they can repeat the magic for this one as it won’t be the last, with Neeson revealing they’ve talked about stretching the series even further. Check out the photos above and below.
