Maggie Grace (“The Fog”, TV’s “Lost”) has landed the female lead opposite Liam Neeson in the thriller “Taken,” a co-production between Europa Corp. and 20th Century Fox says Reuters.
Grace is set to play the estranged daughter of Neeson’s character who is kidnapped and forced into the slave trade. Neeson’s character is a former spy who uses his skills to rescue her.
Pierre Morel will direct from a screenplay by Luc Besson and Robert Mark Kamen. Shooting begins this month in Paris.
