Taken 2 To Shoot In October

Luc Besson’s sequel to 2007’s “find foreigners, kill foreigners” action flick Taken in the schedule for an early 2012 but has been moved forward to October this year.

Taken 2 will see original star Liam Neeson kicking ass but not bothering to ask names with the awesomely named Oliver Megaton behind the cameras. Megaton has previously directed Transporter 3 (also written by Besson) and the forthcoming Colombiana and will be stepping in for Taken director Pierre Morel.

He’s currently scouting some locations in LA but only part of the action is scheduled there, which leads us to think that Taken 2 could once again see Neeson beating the living daylights out of some dirty dirty foreigners.
