In a new trailer for Taken 3 released Tuesday, the 62-year-old actor finds himself in hot water after his ex-wife Lenore (Famke Janssen) is found murdered in her bed.
Before cops are able to arrest Neeson in the family home, the ex-CIA agent breaks free, leading to a massive manhunt across Los Angeles County.
"There are things I've done in my life and I was always ready to face the consequences to protect my family," Neeson says in the sneak peek. "My first priority is to protect the only one I have left."
That special someone is his on-screen daughter (Maggie Grace) who somehow avoids being taken in the latest film. The first installment of the series, which hit theatres back in 2008, featured Grace's shocking disappearance in Europe.
