Liam Neeson says ‘Taken 3’ is the end for vigilante Bryan Mills

First images revealed for sequel which will be called 'Tak3n'

Liam Neeson has revealed that the third instalment of the Taken franchise will be the last.

The first images of Neeson in character have been released along with the confirmation of the film’s title, Tak3n.

Speaking in an interview with USA Today the actor said: “It’s a rollicking good story but I think this is the end.”

No news yet on who gets taken and when asked about the plot of the film Neeson joked, “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.”

According to the report the retired CIA agent with the ‘particular set of skills’ takes flight after being framed for the murder of someone close to him. The actor added: “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.”

Forest Whitaker (The Last King of Scotland) will play a law enforcement officer pursuing Mills. Tak3n will be released in cinemas January 8, 2015.

As reported, Neeson will make a cameo appearance in Seth McFarlane’s comedy sequel Ted 2.

His latest film A Walk Among the Tombstones is in cinemas now. Neeson plays an ex-cop turned private eye on the trail of serial killing kidnappers in the thriller based on the novels of Lawrence Block.
