The first trailer has been released for 3 Days to Kill, an upcoming action-thriller starring Kevin Costner as a Secret Service Agent who has three days to complete his final mission, while trying to connect with his young daughter (Hailee Steinfeld). The whole “tough-agent-dad-with-estranged-daughter” thing is definitely going to bring memories of Taken, which is no wonder, considering Luc Besson had a hand in writing both films. The action appears to be in the ‘dumb-fun’ vein and it’s certainly good to see Costner back in a starring role.
Directed by McG (Charlie’s Angels, Terminator Salvation).
