EuropaCorp and Relativity Media have closed deals with Amber Heard (The Rum Diary, Paranoia), Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit) and Connie Nielsen (Gladiator) for their Untitled McG Thriller project starring previously announced Oscar-winner Kevin Costner (The Bodyguard, Dances with Wolves, Open Range). McG (Charlie's Angels, Terminator Salvation) directs the gripping action tale from a screenplay by Luc Besson (Taken, The Transporter) and Adi Hasak (From Paris with Love). The film is currently in production in Paris and will continue in Serbia, where it will wrap on April 22nd.

Collaborating with McG behind the scenes is a creative below-the-line team including: director of photography Thierry Arbogast (The Fifth Element), production designer Sébastien Inizan (Taken 2), sound editor Stéphane Bucher (Taken 2), costume designer Olivier Bériot (Taken) and editor Audrey Simonaud (Taken 2).

This darkly comedic action film tells a story 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 being produced by EuropaCorp's Besson and Relativity's CEO, Ryan Kavanaugh (The Fighter). Marc Libert (Lockout) and Relativity's President, Tucker Tooley (Immortals) will executive produce.

3 Days to Kill was released February 21st, 2014 and stars Kevin Costner, Amber Heard, Hailee Steinfeld, Connie Nielsen, Tómas Lemarquis, Richard Sammel, Marc Andréoni, Bruno Ricci. The film is directed by McG.

    Good bye Luc Besson. Have fun cash-grabbing Liam Nesson and his Taken movies.

    Nielsen and Heard? The film won't suffer from the lack of attractive women, to say the least.
