The upcoming Luc Besson produced and co-written thriller previously known as Three Days To Kill, now untitled, appears to have been busy securing its director and star for the film. McG (Terminator Salvation), as previously suspected, will direct with Kevin Costner staring as a dying assassin longing for reconciliation with his daughter while embarking on a final mission.

Praised as a “gripping action tale,” the script was co-written with Adi Hasak (From Paris With Love). Here’s the long-form synopsis which has seen a few additions since first made public:

The thriller explores a story about Secret Service Agent Ethan Runner who discovers he’s dying and decides to retire in order to reconnect with his estranged family. But when the Secret Service offers him access to an experimental drug that could save his life in exchange for one last assignment, he soon finds himself trying to juggle his family, his mission, and the drug’s hallucinatory side-effects.

EuropaCorp and Relativity Media will collaborate for the second time in recent history, splitting the duties of production and finance in half. The second film, Malavita, is further along in production. Directed by Besson, Malavita  stars  Robert De Niro, Michelle Pfeiffer, Tommy Lee JonesDianna Agron (Glee, I Am Number Four) and John D’Leo (The Wrestler, Wanderlust).
