Good news gang, Liam Neeson is officially locked in to reprise his role in TAKEN 2. Yesterday we reported that there was a possibility he would not return to star in Luc Besson’s sequel because shooting conflicted with Neeson’s planned time off. Keep reading for more details.Besson even had a list of actors put together to replace Neeson if he ended up not returning, including Mickey Rourke, Ralph Fiennes, Ray Winstone, Sean Bean and Jason Isaacs. Besson has now worked out the shooting schedule so that Neeson will now star.
Neeson definitley needs a break and is set to take the rest of the year off once he’s finished with WRATH OF THE TITANS. He has been busy filming THE GREY and BATTLESHIP recently, so he is need of some time to relax.
