Clive Standen To Star In NBC's TAKEN Series
If there were ever a doubt that a proper find for the role of a younger "Bryan Mills" lead for a Taken prequel series would be likely, you can quell your worries now. Actor Clive Standen, best know for his role in the currently-running History channel series, Vikings, will be the man leading point for the new NBC action drama inspired by the hit film franchise that starred Liam Neeson.
Showrunner Alex Cary is writing and executive producing for director and executive producer Alex Graves which will set off the story of how our protagonist, Mills, acquired his particular skillset. Universal Television and EuropaCorp TV USA is producing with trilogy co-writer and producer Luc Besson, and EuropaCorp’s own Matthew Gross, Edouard de Vesinne and Thomas Anargyros.
