Liam Neeson is returning as Bryan Mills, a dangerous father with a specific set of skills that he used to track down Kim in 2009's Taken, after Kim was abducted in Europe. The 2012 sequel Taken 2 flipped the script, with Kim helping to rescue her father and mother (Famke Janssen) after they were taken hostage in Albania. No story details have been released for this follow-up, although our report from January also revealed that Forest Whitaker is in talks for an unspecified role.
In related news, Maggie Grace has also signed on to star alongside Charlie Cox in an untitled Wall Street drama pilot for CBS, which is being executive produced by John Cusack. The story centers on Jackson (Charlie Cox), a hedge fund trader, with Maggie Grace portraying Jaime, who has just joined the legal team at the company.
The actress' deal took quite awhile to negotiate, since she had to organize her schedule to accommodate both the pilot and Taken 3. Niels Arden Oplev is directing the pilot from a script by Justified writers Taylor Elmore and Benjamin Cavell, which is based on a story they co-wrote with John Cusack and Kevin McCabe.
