If Liam Neeson's daughter was kidnapped in the first film and then in the second the ex-wife. Who is going to be kidnapped next in third? His niece, cousin or the President's daughter? My question is. Did this series really need to become a trilogy?
We know why Neeson is going to do it, as his salary will be close to 20 million reportedly by 20th Century Fox. Close to the first films budget of 25 million. The films have been huge hits around the world. With the first film cost around $25 million and grossed over $226 million and the second film which cost around $45 million and grossed over $376 million. However, I'm still puzzled by the audience group who with their presence in the cinemas. Demanded a sequel to the series. As they say "to each his own".
After Neeson's deal, Fox will next re-sign Maggie Grace and Famke Janssen who played his daughter and ex-wife respectively. The film will be written by Luc Besson and Robert Mark Kamen. The same writers of the two previous films.
