Despite candidly telling Dublin radio station 98FM whilst on the promotional trail for Taken 2 that, "I don't think there'll be a Taken 3. She can't get taken again... that's just bad parenting," it appears that the irrepressible Liam Neeson has succumbed to overtures to appear once more as retired CIA agent Bryan Mills in a third outing of the Taken franchise, after producers dumped a truck full of $20 million dollars on his doorstep.

Despite the near diabolical critical drubbing of 2012's Taken 2 (it appears on Rotten Tomatoes with just 21% approval), the film did spectacular business worldwide, nearing $400 million off a budget of $45 million.

If production goes ahead, a 2015 release date appears most likely. Luke Besson and Robert Mark Kamen are currently working on the screenplay for distributor Twentieth Century Fox. Who says crime doesn't pay?
