Rade Sherbedgia Set as Villain Opposite Liam Neeson in TAKEN 2

     October 13, 2011


Fox has found its foil to Liam Neeson for Taken 2. Serbian actor Rade Sherbedgia, a recognizable face who has had memorable turns in films like Batman Begins, Snatch, and Mission: Impossible II, will take on the role of Murad. Heat Vision reports that Murad is the father of a kidnapper who met his maker at the hands of Neeson in kick-ass mode during the first film. The plot from the first film is turned on its head this time around, as the story finds Neeson and his wife (Famke Janssen) being held hostage by Murad, forcing Neeson’s daughter (Maggie Grace) to rescue them. Olivier Megaton (Colombiana) is directing a script by producer Luc Besson and Robert Mark Kamen. Production is set to get underway later this month in Turkey and France. Taken 2 opens October 5th, 2012.
