20th Century Fox announced in a press release that a third and the final installment for the hit-action thriller film "Taken" is already in the works and is expected to hit the theaters on January 9, 2015. Reports indicated that principal photography for the film already began last March 29 in locations around Los Angeles.

For fans who are wondering what will "Taken 3" be about this time, Manly Movie said in their publication that Bryan Mills (Liam Neeson) will "get framed for a murder he didn't commit."

"Pursued by police, Bryan rendezvous' with his daughter, Maggie, in the women's restroom during her class at UCLA. The police discover his whereabouts and attempt to apprehend him at the university. Bryan sets off a flash grenade in a classroom, setting off the school's fire sprinkler system, creating havoc and allowing his escape," the website revealed.

As for the question whether or not there will be someone "taken" again, Neeson answered it during the Jonathan Ross show.

"Yeah, we're going to do it this year. I said I'll do it as long as nobody gets taken. I'm serious," the 62-year-old action star said.

Meanwhile, film writer and director Luc Besson told the Collider that, "the third film is another story that has nothing to do with him and his family. No one is taken. The dog is not taken. It's another story with the same characters. It's different, but it's very good."

"It's probably the best of the three for me, in terms of the script," Besson added.

Additional news specified other new characters to appear in the film. Among the confirmed include Forest Whitaker as Franck Dotzler and Johnny Weston as Kim's boyfriend.
