Rade Sherbedgia has landed the role of the lead villain (the father of the original film’s kidnapper) in the upcoming Taken 2, says a story at The Hollywood Reporter.
The film, which was just yesterday given the release date of October 5, 2012, is officially described as follows:
Liam Neeson returns as Bryan Mills, the retired CIA agent with a particular set of skills who stopped at nothing to save his daughter Kim from Albanian kidnappers. When the father of one of the kidnappers swears revenge, and takes Bryan and his wife hostage during their family vacation in Istanbul, Bryan enlists Kim to help them escape, and uses the same advanced level of special forces tactics to get his family to safety and systematically take out the kidnappers one by one.
Though they had no scenes together, Sherbedgia played a minor role in Batman Begins, which also starred Neeson.
