Liam Neeson — Will There Be A Taken 4?

“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,” Liam told USA Today. “And I’ll start playing dads or grandfathers. But I keep myself pretty fit and my knees are still great. And it’s fun.”

So will there be a Taken 4? Will the franchise live on? Liam told USA Today, ” It’s a rollicking good story, but I think this is the end.”

Sadness! But we still have Taken 3 to look forward to, which is coming out early next year!
