'Taken 3' Is A Go, Liam Neeson Gets Paid

Did you like Taken?  Taken 2?  Well Taken 3 is on the way.  Oh, and Liam Neeson is getting a pretty fat paycheck for his participation -- $20M.
Get ready for a third installment of Taken, the franchise launched by EuropaCorp’s Luc Besson and released by 20th Century Fox. I’m told that Liam Neeson is closing a deal in the vicinity of $20 million to reprise his role as Bryan Mills, the retired CIA agent who used his brutal skills after his daughter was kidnapped in France to be sold into sex slavery. Neeson was a reluctant participant in the first sequel but got paid in the $15 million neighborhood. Now I hear he’s getting another raise, and that EuropaCorp is planning to start production in February.
