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!

Yummy, yum, yumz!! This Battleship star totes gets our boat floating!
Liam Neeson popped in on Ellen yesterday and we were tickled pink to see him emerge on stage wearing nothing but a pink robe!
Why pink? He was raising money for Breast Cancer Awareness Month!!
Uh, did he just disrobe down to his pretty pink skivvies? Whoa!! Anything in the name of philanthropy!
Ch-ch-check out your favorite badass Belfast native like you've NEVER seen him before, nearly naked and dripping wet (above)!
If you look close enough, we're pretty sure you can see the outline of his meat whistle and crumpets!
Nothing beats half-naked hotties drenching themselves for a good cause!
We all can agree that Liam Neeson is the man.
And, by all accounts, it seems like the sequel to the movie that emphasized Neeson's butt kicking abilities, will be the shizz.
Needless to say, we're very pumped for this action romp fest to hit the big screen.
It doesn't get any better than watching Neeson beastin' random European bad guys.
So, please train your wonderful eyes on the SECOND trailer for Taken 2 directly (above) !!!
Never underestimate the power of a brown bob wig!
Doesn't Minka Kelly look JUST like Jackie O! Incredible!!!
We spotted the actress and her on-screen hubby, James Marsden, walking on the set of The Butler sporting some
sexy 1960s PJs yesterday afternoon and we have to say, we're impressed.
The flick is about a butler (played by Forest Whitaker) who worked at the White House under eight Presidents … which means Minka and James won't be the only actors playing POTUS dress-up!
Other former Presidents portrayed in the film include:
Remember the trailer for Taken 2 we posted back in June? Well, that was a leaked trailer, but now the official version has debuted.
It's pretty much the same thing as the other one, except things happen in a slightly different order as cooler music plays, but who can resist watching Liam Neeson kick ass with his particular set of skills over and over again?
We can't and neither can U. Enjoy!
We are SO excited for Oprah’s return to the big screen, with the filming of The Butler, a historical flick chock full of A-listers!
We guess in ending her talk show, some doors that had remained closed since 1998 — with her role as Sethe in Beloved — have FINALLY reopened!!
Check out the Mighty O (above) on set in New Orleans!
Werk that wig, Mz. Winfrey!
Oprah will be playing the role of
Seriously …. you might need a bit of a refresher!
And this is epic, epic, epic, epic, EPIC, rinse and repeat, ad infinitum!
If you're one of the lucky Bat-fans watching the entire trilogy tonight, this triple-tease is an absolute pre-requisite!!
