Hailee Steinfeld got much praise and as Oscar nomination for True Grit, but we haven’t seen much of her since (although IMDB says she’s got six flm in post-production). Now it’s been confirmed, via Deadline, that she’s joined Kevin Costner in director McG’s untitled action thriller, formerly known as Three Days to Kill.
Luc Besson is producing the film, which follows a dying Secret Service agent (Costner) who decides to take on one final mission while simultaneously trying to reconnect with his estranged daughter. Desperate to save himself, the agent is also part of an experimental drug study that might prolong his life long enough for a sequel. The drug begins to take its toll when it’s discovered that it produces some much-unwanted hallucinatory side effects.
Luc Besson wrote the screenplay alongside Adi Hasak. Production should begin early next year.
