Playing Liam Neeson Introduces the World of 'Taken 3'

Taken 3 hits close to home.

In ETonline's exclusive look, actor Liam Neeson talks about the filming locations for the Taken film franchise.

"The first film we traveled to France, the second film we traveled to Istanbul," Neeson says. For Taken 3, "the movie is set firmly in home soil, Los Angeles in particular."

In his latest role, Neeson, 62, returns as former CIA operative Bryan Mills. Mills is framed for the murder of his ex-wife and must use his skills to find the real killers and clear his name while protecting his daughter. Forest Whittaker and Maggie Grace join Neeson in this thriller.

In a recent interview with The Guardian, Neeson said that this may be one of his last action roles.

"Maybe two more years. If God spares me and I'm healthy. But after that, I’ll stop [the action] I think," Neeson said.

He further explained that it's nothing against the Taken films, "The success of certainly the Taken films, Hollywood seems to see me in a different light. I get sent quite a few action-oriented scripts, which is great. I'm not knocking it. It's very flattering. But there is a limit, of course."
