Kevin Costner to Star in Guillermo del Toro's MIDNIGHT DELIVERY
Ever since Kevin Costner starred in the History Channel's Hatfields and McCoys his career has blown back up. He's been getting a lot of offers, and now he's in talks to star in an upcoming Guillermo del Toro produced thriller called Midnight Delivery.
According to THR the film centers on a father "who attempts to save his estranged daughter from a Colombian gang by trafficking cocaine to London on a midnight flight."
The script for the film was co-written by Del Toro and Neil Cross (the co-creator of BBC's Luther). This could be another solid role for Costner to take on. This seems like a very interesting project for Del Toro, who is mostly known for developing projects that deal with fictional monsters.
The project was first announced back in 2011, with Game of Thrones director Brian Kirk attached to direct. He's not mentioned in the recent report though, so I'm not sure if he's still on board or not.
Costner recently played in Man of Steel and will next be seen opposite Chris Pine in Jack Ryan. He just wrapped a movie called Three Days to Kill.
