Kevin Costner Is Taking The Taken Route And Becoming An Action Hero!

Luc Besson's Taken turned Liam Neeson into the action hero we all know and love today, but can he do the same for Kevin Costner?

The 57-year-old has been cast in Besson's next high-octane action thriller as a dying secret service agent who is offered a life-saving drug if he completes one last mission. The McG directed film followers Costner “trying to juggle his family, his mission, and the drug’s hallucinatory side-effects.”

The Waterworld star is no stranger to action, so we have no doubt he can pull this role off with ease. In fact, he's already immersing himself in the genre as we speak!

Following his Emmy win for Hatfields & McCoys, he began shooting scenes opposite Chris Pine in the next Jack Ryan movie!

We think Sylvester Stallone may have just found another recruit for his Expendable army of aging action stars!

Oh, nice! This is going to be QUITE the pairing!

Angelina Jolie may be moving into behind-the-camera work, but she has reportedly in talks to go back to acting for a currently untitled, big-scale movie by Transporter and Taken director Luc Besson!

According to sources, the project is a dramatic thriller rooted in true scientific elements, and the actress will begin production on it in the spring if all goes as planned!

Between this and Gertrude Bell - on which she'll reportedly begin work upon the Besson project's completion - she's certainly keeping herself busy!

Not that we're complaining!

We love our Angie on the big screen!

Liam Neeson Continues To Be A Bad-Ass In Movies, Signs On For Taken 2

Filed under: Film FlickersLiam Neeson

liam neeson to go bad ass again in taken 2

As we've mentioned before, Liam Neeson has a very particular set of skills: being a total bad-ass in movies!

We recently saw him go all types of bad-ass in Unknown, and now he's gonna bring it again in Taken 2.

After figuring out some scheduling issues, Liam Neeson and Taken writer/producer Luc Besson are closing a deal for Liam to star in the action-movie sequel, with production likely to begin around the start of 2012.

We generally prefer original ideas to sequels, prequels, reboots, and reboots of prequel sequels (ha!), BUT we're kind of in support of any and all opportunities to see Liam Neeson delve further into his newly found bad-ass movie persona!

Keep kicking butt, Liam! We'll keep watching!

Would U like to see Liam Neeson go bad-ass again in Taken 2?
