Maggie Grace talks ‘Taken 2,’ next project

While promoting Lockout Maggie Grace talked about the ‘Taken’ sequel, working with Liam Neeson in the new film, nicknamed Taken 2, and her next project – which is ‘super secret’ – check out the full CBM interview here.

First up is a question about what to expect from Grace’s character in the new film.

“Well, she’s more empowered this time around. Her parents are abducted, so she’s left to try to help rescue them. It pretty much picks up where the other film left off.”

She confirms the delay of five years for a sequel: ” Yeah because we shot the film and then with editing and everything, the turn around of it…so it was almost five years since we were last in Paris shooting the first one. It was amazing, but emotionally wonderful to have everyone back – Liam and Famke [Janssen]. It was really crazy to be back in some of the same studios. Sorry, what was the question? I flew in from location last night. *laughs*”


Grace confirms that she’s also filming in “Atlanta. We were at night shoots last night,” but when asked “What are you shooting?” – Grace got silent.

“It’s untitled right now….”

Q: Who’s the director?

MG: I don’t know. *laughs*

Q: You can’t say?

MG: No. Super secret.

Q: Alien invasion movie down in Atlanta…

MG: *laughs* Atlanta kind of kills the mystery, doesn’t it? It sounds really good until you’re like in Atl – I mean I love Atlanta, but it’s not as mysterious as some locations might be. ‘Yes, I was shooting in Tallinn, Estonia last night. I’m sorry I’m so tired.’ *laughs*
