Hottie from LOST set to join Hollywood Action Movies

Maggie Grace, formerly known as Shannon Rutherford on Lost, is set to star in the action movie Taken with Liam Neeson. Grace will be playing a character who is kidnapped and forced into slavery. Neeson’s character, a former spy, is charged with saving her. French writer-director Luc Besson (The Transporter) is both writing and producing the film, and French cinematographer Pierre Morel will direct.

Grace lately appeared in a poorly-received remake of The Fog, and will star in two upcoming films: Suburban Girl, with Sarah Michelle Gellar and Alec Baldwin; and The Jane Austen Book Club, with Emily Blunt and Maria Bello. Several other Lost cast members have parlayed the television drama’s success into film careers. Matthew Fox recently starred in We Are Marshall and Smokin’ Aces, and Ian Somerhalder was seen in the 2006 horror movie Pulse.
