Back for more: A Conversation with Olivier Megaton for the Digital and Home Entertainment release of Taken 3


01 June 2015

French director Olivier Megaton made his feature debut with the sci-fi thriller Exit (2000), a Luc Besson production. Megaton and Besson have enjoyed a close working relationship, collaborating on explosive action films such as Transporter 3 (2008), Columbiana (2011) and Taken 2 (2012).

Taken 3 (2015) sees Megaton return to the franchise, as he guides Liam Neeson’s Bryan Mills through a new set of intense action set-pieces and dramatic challenges...

 

How did you feel when you first read the script?

When I first read the script I was surprised because Luc and Liam told me that nobody was going to be taken in this one. My favorites surprise was the cop character, and all the things I could bring into it, like the emotion. This was my first thought, I was thinking ‘wow’ I can take this movie somewhere else.

 

Why do you think people respond so well to Bryan Mills?


People respond to Bryan Mills because he is a very simple character in terms of movie storytelling. He’s just focused on his family, and that’s something that’s very unique and particular to the Taken franchise. People like this franchise because it tells them this very simple thing that they can relate to in their own life. It’s why they love it so much, I think. And it’s why the second one worked so much, and I hope this one will be the same. We respect their fear and so on, and we try to give them solutions of what could be done in the worst case.
