Looking at return on money spent -- and entertainment value for that matter -- Liam Neeson's Taken has to be one of the biggest hits of the past year. With a tiny budget, and a role that was considered a break for Neeson, the film has gone on to make over $220 million worldwide. Whoa!

The studios have noticed the success, and are hoping to replicate with Protection.


Paul Walker for Protection


Following a similar premise, Protection won't have kidnappings, but will feature a constant chase that takes us around the globe. The thriller will follow a twenty-one-year-old daughter of a Mexican judge who's targeted by mob types (after she sees them kill her father and other family members), and must stay on the run through dodgy places on both sides of the border, while an agent tries to protect her and the bad guy is hot on her trail.

As you might have guessed, Paul Walker has landed the role of 'Protector', something that begs one to question whether he can throw karate chops to the neck and knees to the head like Neeson did.

The project is currently seeking out a studio.
