Taken 2 Gets Their Bad Guy, Plot Details Revealed

Movie News

Well, we haven’t heard much about the sequel to 2008’s “Taken” that starred Liam Neeson and it looks like casting wise, things are finally moving forward.

THR is reporting that Rade Serbedzija, who played Dmitri Gredenko in TV’s “24” has been cast as the villain in “Taken 2″.

Serbedzija (who is usually credited as Rade Sherbedgia), will play Murad, the father of a kidnapper slain by Bryan Mills (Neeson) in the first film. Murad is described as a vengeful man who gives orders and doesn’t take them. When Murad takes Mills and his wife hostage, their daughter is enlisted to help save them.

“Taken 2″, which will be released Oct. 5, 2012, also stars Famke Janssen and Maggie Grace. Olivier Megaton, who directed “Colombiana” with Zoe Saldana, will direct the flick.

Luc Besson, who co-wrote the script with Robert Mark Kamen, is producing through his EuropaCorp banner.

“Taken 2″ will begin filming in Turkey and France later this month.
