Forest Whitaker is now Taken too

Forest Whitaker will find you… and he will kill you.

A third “Taken” may be in the works, and Liam Neeson may have a partner in plight this time.

‘Super Poppa’ Bryan Mills looks to be joined by Oscar Winner Forest Whitaker, fresh off “Lee Daniels’ The Butler”, in the third installment. Whether Whitaker’s playing a fellow agent or some kind of other authority figure, Deadline doesn’t seem to know (wait…surely he’s not the bad guy, right!?).

Maggie Grace is also believed to be returning, reprising her role as Mills’ formerly-hopeless daughter (she inherited half-a-brain in “Taken 2″ and helped her dad outsmart the bad guys).

Oliver Megaton, who directed the second instalment in the profitable franchise, is back for the movie, which gets up in March.
