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!

Terminator Salvation was not a critical success and one of it's biggest critics happens to be the franchise's biggest star!
In a recent interview, Arnold Schwarzenegger admits he thought the latest sequel to The Terminator was "awful." While talking about projects he'd like to be a part of, he told sources:

Our eyes…are melting…off of our faces. We gotta hurry up and finish this post before we're just blindly hitting the keyboard!
Tom Hardy flashed some ass on the set of This Means War when both he and director McG took a paintball to the butt.
Check out the HIGHlarious and HAWT clip above in which one of the seksiest men on the planet bares his butt cheek for the world. Oh dear Lord, the things we would have done to watch this in person!
Oh no! We watched it again and it's happening! Our eyes…slowly drooping toward the floor, can't see anythindfd…dafsfmsdit.

Is anybody really surprised?
After reports that the Universal film Ouija needed major work on its script, it looks the studio has decided to just drop the film entirely.
The movie had some major players behind it, as it was to be produced by Michael Bay and directed by McG. It was heading in the direction of a big budget film, but something went awry as it's now been scrapped.

Back in October, we heard that Reese Witherspoon and Chelsea Handler were set to co-star in the McG-directed comedy This Means War together.
Guess working together has brought them close, because the two were seen heading out to dinner together (above) in El Lay last night.
Why didn't you bring Tom Hardy along with you? He's starring in your new movie too, right?
Hope you two had a good dinner!
…Bring Tom next time. Ha!

Chelsea Handler has landed her second studio role in the McG-directed comedy This Means War, opposite Reese Witherspoon, Tom Hardy and Chris Pine.
Handler just completed work on her first studio role opposite Russell Brand, in Universal Pictures/Illumination Entertainment's CG-live action film, Hop.
One good thing about her new movie project
aside from Tom Hardy is that McG couldn't possibly do a worse job than he did with Terminator: Salvation, and Chelsea Handler couldn't be any worse than she was at the VMAs.
Our curiosity is piqued
mostly because of Tom Hardy.
Will U go see either of Chelsea Handler's upcoming movies?

Looks like Disney's 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea is back on track and the director is…David Fincher?
The director, who was behind films like Se7en and Fight Club was chosen to take on the classic Jules Verne story after Disney's new production head Sean Bailey came on board.
Fincher has said that he wanted "to tackle a four-quadrant tentpole movie" for the first time in his career.
The project was initially going to be directed by McG, but the $150 million budget and "dark tone" of the project was a concern for the studio and it was scrapped.
Sources are saying that the adaptation is "described as being in the vein of Star Wars or The Empire Strikes Back. It will aim to be visually dazzling."
