TAKEN 2 Director Will Helm the Action Thriller TAKING GOTHAM

MovieTaken 2by Joey Paur

Taken 2 director Olivier Megaton is set to direct a new action thriller for Emmett/Furla Films called Taking Gotham, and no it's not a new Batman movie being directed by Megaton. Although that would be something.

This movie actually sounds pretty cool. It's based on a true story "about a secret unit of the NYPD that was created in response to a string of brutal robberies in New York City. After a deadly sting operation, the elite unit is disavowed by the NYPD, forcing them to go deep underground in order to clear their names."

This sounds like the most interesting project that Megaton has worked on. Some of the other films he's directed include Columbiana and Transporter 3. All of the films I've seen from him have been mediocre, but this new one has a story that could make for a really good movie.
