Liam Neeson has thrilled fans for years on the big screen, playing Bryan Mills in the three Taken films. Now fans will get to see a much younger Bryan Mills on TV. A TV series based on Liam Neeson's Taken movies is reportedly in the works.

Sadly, this doesn't mean that Liam Neeson will star in the films. As of yet, no one has been cast in the role of the considerably younger Bryan Mills. The TV version of Taken will feature Mills long before he marries and has a family.

The show's tagline borrows from the movies.

“What I do have are a very particular set of skills, skills I have acquired over a very long career; Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you.”

Will the show have the same impact without Liam Neeson as the lead?

The first Taken film hit the big screen back in 2008. A sequel was released in 2012. Both were huge box office hits. Taken 3 came out in 2015.

How receptive do you expect Liam Neeson fans might be to a Taken TV series without him? So far he isn't involved in the project at all.

That will obviously depend on whomever is selected for the younger Bryan Mills role.
