We already knew that Amber Heard and Hailee Steinfeld were in talks to join Kevin Costner in McG’s currently untitled thriller (previously known as Three Days To Kill), and now it’s been revealed that Connie Nielsen (Gladiator) will join them.
McG will directs the action flick from a screenplay by Luc Besson (Taken, The Transporter) and Adi Hasak (From Paris with Love). The darkly comedic action film is about a secret service agent who’s agreed to return from retirement for one last mission – in exchange for access to an experimental drug that could save his life. Hallucinatory, narcoleptic action ensues as he tries to complete the mission while battling the side effects of the drug.
The film is currently in production in Paris and will continue in Serbia, where it will wrap on April 22nd. The hope is to get it in cinemas before the end of the year.
