Liam Neeson is getting paid the big bucks to reprise his one of his legendary, redundant roles.
He has been offered $20mil to reprise his role as a former CIA hitman in Taken 3.. Nowhere near Robert Downey Jr’s $50mil for his role as Iron Man in The Avengers but still, not too shabby for a 61 year old action star.
Obviously this isn’t because the movies are that good. Taken 2 was a carbon copy of the first movie. But they were such a success in the box office that they have to mass produce these movies. (Fast and Furious 6 anyone???)
Taken met its budget in a weekend when it debuted in 2009, then last year’s sequel made $140 million and only cost $45 million to make. Cha-ching!
Are you in for another Taken movie?
