Hailee Steinfeld to star opposite Kevin Costner in McG thriller


Hailee Steinfeld, the young actress who was nominated for an Oscar for “True Grit” a couple of years ago, will star opposite Kevin Costner in an untitled thriller previously known as “Three Days to Kill”.

The movie is directed by McG and produced by Luc Besson and tells of “a Service agent who discovers he’s dying. Before he goes, he attempts to complete a final mission, and reconnect with his estranged daughter. He’s also taking an experimental drug that could prolong his life, and that adds complexity to the ticking clock because of the drug’s hallucinatory side effect”, according to Deadline.

The movie comes from the crowd that did the “Taken” movies, suggesting this might be an effort to get Kevin Costner his own action franchise.
