NEW YORK (AP) -- People are known to swoon over being in Paris during the spring. But the director of "Taken 2" says doing a movie in Istanbul in the fall is nothing to get romantic about. Olivier Megaton (MEH'-guh-tuhn) says he wanted to film in the Turkish city because it's so different looking from most cities in the world. But he says until he did "Taken 2," he had only shot there during the spring and summer. This time, he did the filming in the fall -- and it wasn't fun. Megaton says it was a "pain in the ass" because it was cold and rainy much of the time. But the movie has done well so far. It's number one at the box office going into its second weekend in theaters.
