Move over Liam Neeson, there's new older leading male actor ready to slum it in a modestly budgeted Euro thriller produced and co-written by Luc Besson: Kevin Costner. That's right, Superman's Dad is ready to rumble abroad and the first trailer for "3 Days To Kill" is here to show off what he's up to.
Co-starring Amber Heard, Hailee Steinfeld and Connie Nielsen, and directed by McG, the film finds Costner playing an elite government hitman who quits his day job after he learns that he has a terminal disease, and decides to try and build a relationship with his estranged wife and daughter. But when his agency offers him an experimental, potentially life-saving drug in exchange for one last mission, he takes the gig, pitting him against a ruthless terrorist. Insert: special set of skills etc.
Thoughts? Let us know below. "3 Days To Kill" opens next year.
