Move over, Liam Neeson! We’ve got a new candidate for Daddy of the Decade and this one has an eery resemblance to Superman’s papa. 

According to The Hollywood ReporterKevin Costner is in talks to star in Midnight Delivery, a Takenmeets- Contraband thriller being produced by acclaimed filmmaker Guillermo del Toro. The film, co-written by Pacific Rim director Guillermo del Toro and Luther co-creator Neil Cross, follows Costner’s character as he trafficks cocaine on a midnight flight to London in order to save his estranged daughter from a Colombian gang. Del Toro, who is currently in pre-production to direct the haunted house horror film Crimson Peak in January 2014, will still oversee the expected fall shooting of Midnight Delivery. 

Costner seems to be back in action these days, recently landing several starring big roles in Man of SteelJack Ryanand Three Days to Kill.  Regardless, I’m mostly looking forward to watch him revisit his love-driven protectiveness most recollected in The Bodyguard.
