Luc Besson's Taken turned Liam Neeson into the action hero we all know and love today, but can he do the same for Kevin Costner?
The 57-year-old has been cast in Besson's next high-octane action thriller as a dying secret service agent who is offered a life-saving drug if he completes one last mission. The McG directed film followers Costner “trying to juggle his family, his mission, and the drug’s hallucinatory side-effects.”
The Waterworld star is no stranger to action, so we have no doubt he can pull this role off with ease. In fact, he's already immersing himself in the genre as we speak!
Following his Emmy win for Hatfields & McCoys, he began shooting scenes opposite Chris Pine in the next Jack Ryan movie!
We think Sylvester Stallone may have just found another recruit for his Expendable army of aging action stars!
