Kevin Costner Confirmed to Star in Luc Besson-Produced Secret Service Thriller for Director McG

     October 2, 2012


Back in August, we learned that McG and Kevin Costner were looking to possibly team up on an untitled action thriller (previously titled Three Days to Kill)produced by Luc Besson (The Fifth Element, Taken).  It appears that things have officially come together, as Variety reports that Costner has closed a deal to star in the film while McG is set to direct.  Besson co-wrote the film with Adi Hasak (From Paris with Love), which centers on a dying secret service agent who retires in order to reconnect with his family.  The Secret Service offers him the chance to use an experimental drug that could save his life in exchange for one last assignment, and Costner finds himself “trying to juggle his family, his mission, and the drug’s hallucinatory side-effects.”

It’s a twist on the familiar “one last job” premise, and while I think Costner’s a fine choice to lead the project, I’m less convinced of McG’s skills as a filmmaker.  The set-up provides for some exciting possibilities, so hopefully we’ll be pleasantly surprised.
