Taken (2008)

The 2008 action thriller “Taken,” starring Liam Neeson, was largely filmed in France. Some early scenes in the film, however, are set in Los Angeles, California. Bryan Mills, played by Neesan, visits the home of his ex-wife several times in the film to see his daughter. The home can be found at Fremont Place in Hancock Park. Despite being a popular neighborhood for filming, Fremont Place is unfortunately one of the few gated communities in Los Angeles, making it inaccessible to the general public. Other films showcasing locations inside Fremont Place include “The War Of The Roses,” “Zodiac,” “Rocky III” and more. This home is a popular filming location, also appearing in such films as “Taken 2,” “Rocky IV,” “The Artist” and “Scenes from the Class Struggle in Beverly Hills,” as well as such TV shows as “Charlie’s Angels,” “Paper Dolls,” “CHiPs,” “CSI: Miami,” “Cold Case,” “Beverly Hills, 90210” and many more.
