Sorry, Taken fans, Liam Neeson isn’t ready to watch his daughter get kidnapped — again.

During a visit to The Late Show with Stephen Colbert Friday, Neeson chatted about his holiday plans, his impressive acting résumé, and the possibility of a Taken 4. “Is there any chance there’s gonna be a fourth?” asked Colbert.

“No, there’s not. There’s only so many times your daughter can be taken,” said Neeson, then adding his own joke take on a fourth installment, “Actually if we do have another it will be, ‘Please can you take my daughter’?”

Famous for his character’s intense monologues threatening the kidnappers, the Schindler’s List actor has heard it repeated by fans more than once, including in a public restroom.

“I was standing there doing my business and this other man was there doing his business, and you know, men we don’t look at each other, you do your business, studying the tile,” he said. “I heard this guy quoting the line from Taken: ‘I will find you.’ I thought, ‘Here we go’.” Neeson then made the mistake of turning to look at the fan, who reached out to shake his hand despite their compromising meeting place.

The actor has a busy holiday season, with Martin Scorsese’s Silence, opposite Andrew Garfield and Adam Driver, and A Monster Calls, also starring Felicity Jones and Sigourney Weaver, both opening in limited release starting Dec. 23.
