Speaking to the two publications star Liam Neeson and the director outlined the basic premise.
“I have to go on the run, I’ll put it that way, from the not-so-lawful types and the lawful authorities,” says Neeson. “Bryan Mills served his country faithfully, but now even they are after him. They must not like me.”
“This time, no more traveling. If my daughter was ‘taken’ again on a trip, Bryan Mills would have to be certifiably locked up for bad parenting.”
“Bryan Mills wants to fight quick, using the dirtiest moves possible to finish. It’s not like, ‘Put your fists up, fellow!’ Why fight like that when you can kick someone in the kneecap and be done with it?”
Megaton added “It’s like The Fugitive. Bryan is going to be chased through the whole movie, he’s going to be in danger much more.”
Talking about being an action star so late in his career Neeson added, “If I feel audiences saying, ‘Come on, he’s 62, enough is enough,’ I’m very sensitive to that and if I pick up that vibe it will all stop. And I’ll start playing dads or grandfathers. But I keep myself pretty fit and my knees are still great. And it’s fun.”
Alongside Neeson the film features Maggie Grace, Famke Janssen, Forest Whitaker, Sam Spruell, Dougray Scott, and Dylan Bruno.
Taken 3 is out on January 9th.
