Kevin Costner - Kevin Costner to star in Midnight Delivery

Kevin Costner is in negotiations to star in 'Midnight Delivery'.

The 58-year-old actor - who played Superman's dad in 'Man of Steel' - has been eyed up by producer Guillermo del Toro to play the lead role in Universal's thriller, which focuses on a father who gets caught up in trafficking cocaine to London in a bid to save his child from a Colombian gang.

Del Toro and Neil Cross - who is the co-creator of BBC's 'Luther' - wrote the script together and David Linde of Lava Bear Films will be producing.

Gary Ungar, Tory Metzger and Russell Ackerman will serve as executive producers, while Universal's Scott Bernstein and Sara Scott will oversee the project for the studio.

However, a director is still yet to be selected.

Kevin has been his renewing his movie career recently after popping up in several high-profile projects, including playing alongside Chris Pine in 'Jack Ryan' and most recently in the French thriller, 'Three Days to Kill'.

Filming for 'Midnight Delivery' is expected to kick off towards the end of the year.
