"Lost" star Maggie Grace will play the abducted daughter of Liam Neeson's character in Luc Besson-produced flick "Taken."
Seems big screen roles really suits Maggie Grace as time goes by. Already attached to two movie projects for future releases, the beauty is now reported to have landed the female lead opposite Liam Neeson in "Taken", an action thriller of Luc Besson's Europa Corp. and the 20th Century Fox production.
Here the "Lost" star is plotted as the estranged daughter of Neeson's character who is kidnapped and forced into the slave trade, leading the father, a former spy agent, to use his skills in rescuing her.
Principal photography is due to begin this month in Paris, France under the direction of Pierre Morel. Robert Mark Kamen is penning the script alongside Besson who is producing together with Pierre-Ange Le Pogam and India Osborne.
