Liam Neeson - Nobody gets taken in Taken 3?

Liam Neeson says ''nobody gets taken'' in 'Taken 3'.

The 61-year-old actor is set to star in a third instalment of Luc Besson's popular franchise following the success of the previous films however he has hinted the plot will be significantly different in the newest action thriller.

Nesson has been quoted saying: ''[Taken 3 has a] really, really good story.

''They called me up and I said 'I'll do it... but only as long as nobody gets Taken.'''

The 2008 Pierre Morel-directed film followed a retired CIA agent Bryan Mills (Neeson) on a mission to save his daughter Kim (Maggie Grace) who was kidnapped during a trip to Paris.

While the sequel which proved a box office hit grossing $374 million worldwide shows Bryan and Lenore (Famke Janssen) captured, and Neeson's alter-ego guides his daughter to help save them.

Neeson is said to have been offered $20million to reprise his role and is expected to reunite with Grace and Janssen.

Olivier Megaton - who directed the second film - is in the director's seat, with plans to begin filming in March.

Meanwhile, Luc Besson and his writing partner Robert Mark Kamen have set to work on the script for the new movie.
