NBC's TAKEN Series Lands A Director


Emmy award-winning producer Alex Graves (The West Wing, Homeland, Game Of Thrones) has been tapped to direct NBC's forthcoming pilot for the series adaptation of hit film franchise, Taken, according to Deadline. Graves will direct from a script by executive producer and showrunner, Alex Cary, which will focus on the origins of principal franchise lead character, Bryan Mills, showcasing how he acquired his particular set of skills.

Actor Liam Neeson originally portrayed the role of Mills in the highly-heralded first film from director Pierre Morel before starring in two sequels through last year with Oliver Megaton at the helm. EuropaCorp’s own Matthew Gross, Edouard de Vesinne and Thomas Anargyros will also serve as executive producers along with Taken franchise producer and co-writer Luc Besson, who is also seperately working on the upcoming feature sci-fi epic, Valérian And The City Of A Thousand Planets for 2017 release.
