"Taken" Director's Next Movie Will Be... 


Pierre Morel, the guy who gave us the hit "Taken" has been pursued by Universal Pictures for the action-thriller "Pursuit."

This is based on real-life events revolving around the early career of conflict photographer Jason Howe.

"Pursuit" will focus on Howe's involvement with a woman in Colombia who turned out to be an assassin.

Wow, intriguing! And this happened in real life!

Morel tells Variety, "Aside from the d.p. and camerawork, I have been shooting still photography since I was a kid and have been fascinated by the reportage in war zones."

"If I'd been courageous enough, I might have done that myself. There is the sentimental side of a man in love, and a journalist trying not to become involved in the story he is covering."

As far as the inevitable "Taken" sequel is concerned? Morel and producer Luc Besson are taking their sweet time to come up with a plot worthy of a follow-up. The big question -- who will be "taken" this time, and how can lead actor Liam Neeson get involved?
