Bryan Mills (Liam Neeson) is back, but this time around, no one’s taken. Instead, he’s framed for the murder of his wife, Lenore (Famke Janssen). Detective Frank Dotzler (Forest Whitaker) and the LAPD are on the case, but Bryan knows that the only shot he’s got at clearing his name and keeping his daughter (Maggie Grace) safe is to go on the run and track down the killer himself.
With Taken 3 making its way into theaters on January 9th, I got the chance to sit down with Neeson and Whitaker to talk about their characters’ relationship in the film, Dotzler’s thing for chess pieces, rubber bands and warm bagels, the Liam Neeson Kill Map and more. Check it all out in the video interview after the jump.
