Amber Heard

Perennially cast as the eye candy or love interest in B-action movies like “Never Back Down” and “Drive Angry,” Amber Heard is set to take her talents to a much higher profile project. Variety is reporting that the “All The Boys Love Mandy Lane” actress is joining the McG-helmed “Three Days to Kill” opposite Kevin Costner.

Penned by French action impresario Luc Besson and “From Paris with Love” co-writer Adi Hasak, the film will see Costner play a dying assassin and Secret Service agent who wants to reconcile with his estranged family when a woman (to be played by Heard) “offers him access to an experimental drug that could save his life in exchange for one last assignment, which Costner must complete while coping with the drug’s hallucinatory side effects.” Trippy and far out, man.

Seeing as the last time Besson set one of his action films around an old man it resulted in the surprise hit “Taken,” we’re guessing all involved are hoping to recapture the magic. But can Costner match Liam Neeson in the eyes of audiences? Or will fans of “The Bodyguard” turn out in droves?
