I finally had a chance to watch the movie Taken recently, then I learned that they already confirmed a sequel (coming in October 2012), with Liam Neeson starring as the retired CIA operative “with a particular set of skills”. This time his wife is taken.

I thoroughly enjoyed the action and directing from the first film (by Pierre Morel) , but now they have chosen a different director for the sequel (Olivier Megaton). What direction/style will he bring to Taken 2? Will it be as good as the original?

As usual, the glorious trailer for Taken 2 looks awesome, action fans! And the director, Olivier Megaton has directed other action-packed films such as  Transporter 3 and Colombiana. The script is written by action thriller specialists Luc Besson and Robert Mark Karmen. And easy-on-the-eyes Maggie Grace will be returning too.

Are you a fan of Luc Besson movies like I am? Are you a fan of Maggie Grace? Are you going to see Taken 2?
