Taken 4? “We’ll see” says Liam Neeson

The Taken franchise could be back for another film, as long as it's "completely different"

If three Taken films weren’t enough to satisfy your appetite for Liam Neeson’s bad ass Bryan Mills, you might just be in luck.


Speaking about the possibility of Taken 4, Neeson said: “We’ll see. We’ll see how successful Taken 3 becomes.

“I don’t think [the franchise] can develop any more to satisfy audiences, but you never know,” Neeson added, to Yahoo.

If Mills was to return for another adventure, Neeson reckons the setting of the film would need to be “completely different.”

“I can’t see there being a Taken 4 happening unless they take Bryan Mills and put him into something completely different, scenario with his buddies, you know his little covert group of military buddies.”

So it could happen. Sure, you might think film number three is an obvious place to put the franchise to bed, but then people thought that about Taken 2… 

In fact, pre-Taken 3, Neeson had said he couldn’t see it happening. Speaking to Empire he said: “I don’t think it’s going to happen, I really don’t. I can’t see a possible scenario where audiences wouldn’t go, ‘Oh, come on…! She’s taken again?'”

Point Taken.


Taken 3 is now in cinemas
