AS if three movies wasn’t enough – fans are going to get a whole lot more of Bryan Mills.

One of the biggest TV networks in the US, NBC, has ordered a full series based around Neeson’s character.

However Liam Neeson will not be involved in the series – it will be a prequel focusing on a young Bryan Mills, before he had a family be to taken.

The original movie’s writer Luc Besson is behind the series.

It will follow Mills as he learns the skills which he deploys in the hit movies.

Taken was a surprise hit in 2008, and spawned two sequels.

It re-invented Neeson as an action star – and the trilogy earned almost €1bn worldwide.
