Forest Whitaker is in talks to join Liam Neeson and Maggie Grace in an upcoming third film in the "Taken" franchise.
"Taken 2" helmer Olivier Megaton will return to direct the next movie in the action series from EuropaCorp which Fox is in negotiations to distribute. Besson and Robert Mark Kamen are also returning to pen the script.
Neeson is reportedly closing a near $20 million deal to return as retired CIA agent Bryan Mills. Filming could begin as early as March.
