NBC plans to do a TV prequel to the popular Taken movies. It will follow the lead, Bryan Mills, as he is working in black-ops and receiving his training. However the series will break from canon slightly, as it will be set in modern times, instead of following when Bryan Mills would actually have been young. Clive Standen has been cast in the lead role. Many probably know him as Rollo on Vikings. He was also notable in the series, Camelot, and the film Everest. The series will include one of the writers from Homeland, and the writer/producer of Taken.
