Neeson linked to second Taken film

Liam Neeson is in talks to star in Taken II.

The Irish star is considering reprising his role as retired CIA officer Bryan Mills for the sequel, directed by Transporter 3's Olivier Megaton, reported

Taken, released in 2008, saw Liam running across Paris to find and rescue his daughter after she was kidnapped by slave traders.

The upcoming thriller will reportedly be shot in Istanbul and penned by Luc Besson and Robert Mark Kamen.

Production is expected to start at the end of the year or early 2012.

Liam - who recently starred in Unknown alongside Diane Kruger - is about to reprise his role as Greek god Zeus in the Titans sequel Wrath Of The Titans.

He has also been busy filming naval sci-fi flick Battleship, where Rihanna makes her big-screen debut, and survival movie The Grey, which reunited him with The A-Team filmmaker Joe Carnahan.
