Megaton Will Direct Taken 2

Nesson Taken 300Luc Besson has announced that Oliver Megaton will be the director for Taken 2, which will, unsurprisingly, be a follow up to 2008’s unexpected success Taken.

Megaton has previously directed Transporter 3 (also written by Besson) so knows exactly what how to do a film like this, i.e. get Liam Neeson’s Bryan Mills hobbling around kicking some ass with a few one-liners and a suitably outlandish plot.

Will Taken 2 be one to look forward to? Well, it depends whether the plot once again revolves around his daughter getting kidnapped. In the words of John McClane, ‘how can the same shit happen to the same guy twice?’
