Hello everybody, Quaid here, with a bit of sequelization news.
Everyone says that Hollywood is out of ideas, and everything they make is either a sequel or remake. Then something like Taken comes along and ends up making boat-loads of money. Hollywood revels in its ability to find new stories and material that will connect with audiences.
Once the box-office hype dies down, however, they must figure out a new cash cow. They worked so hard finding that Taken idea, is there something that can match its success? Sure! Another Taken!
So it looks like we will be seeing a new movie in the (unexpected) fledgling franchise. As long as the movie’s title has a colon in it, I’ll be happen. I’m sure it will; we’ve proven over the last decade that a sequel without a colon cannot be cool or successful (except Toy Story 2)
Taken has so far made a staggering $119 million. Looks like Liam Neeson has another payday lined up.
