In Taken 2 van regisseur Olivier Megaton (Colombiana, Transporter 3) heeft Liam Neeson wederom de hoofdrol en ook Maggie Grace keert terug. Dit keer is het echter niet de dochter (Grace) die gered moet worden, maar de vader (Neeson). Hij wordt namelijk gewraakt voor zijn daden in het eerste deel.
Tegenover EW.com sprak Neeson ook over de start van Taken 2, die vanaf 31 oktober in de bioscoop te zien moet zijn:
The action is supposed to take place about a year or a year and a half after the first story. Its a very clever sequel with the usual thrills and spills, but the ante is upped quite a bit in this one. Ive taken a job over in Istanbul looking after a sheik who is there, and afterward I discover that my wifes going through a very bad time with her new husband. So I suggest she and my daughter come over for a few days and hang out with me in this amazing city. And then [laughs] all this st happens, of course. Im taken lets put it that way. They kidnap him to humiliate him, torture him, and ultimately bring him back to the village in Albania where the boys from the original film came from. With the help of my daughter she wants to help me escape from where these bad guys have me.
