The 34-year-old actor will play a younger version of Liam Neeson's character in the television prequel, set during his time with the CIA.
The 62-year-old star of "Run All Night" and the "Taken" franchise says it's about time for him to retire that particular set of skills.
Prepare to be Tooken. Yes, really.
The trailer for Taken 2 finds Liam Neeson searching the alleyways of Istanbul for his kidnapped wife after the father of one of the men he killed in the first film swears revenge.
Television adaptations of the Jason Statham and Liam Neeson-starring action franchises are reportedly in the works, though it's currently unknown whether or not either actor will appear in the developing programs.
