I don’t know who you are.  I don’t know what you want. If you are looking for another sequel, I can tell you I don’t have any interest for it. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills; skills I have acquired over a very long career im movie negotiations. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you let my career go now, that’ll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don’t, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will decline a chance at being in the third Taken movie.

$20 Million? Where do I sign up?

Liam Neeson’s salary “negotiations”.

Kervyn was still joking with me a couple of months back that the only way that a third Taken film would make sense, would be if if the entire European Union conspired together to steal Liam Neeson’s dog. Having had family members abducted twice already in the first two Taken films, it looks like Neeson will indeed be back, being paid a handsome $20 million to do so, according to Deadline.

Story details are still being kept tight, but I’m guessing that the third film will involve a stolen chicken and mayo sammich, a nuclear bomb and large parts of Europe being left uninhabitable by the conclusion. From a business standpoint, it makes sense for Paramount to pursue a third film. The first Taken scored over $226 million at the box office in 2008, while last year’s sequel beat that one soundly in some QCB action to reach a total of $375 million.

Not bad for a movie series that stars a man who is nearing retirement age now.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
