It has been a while since we've heard anything about the Guillermo del Toro produced MIDNIGHT DELIVERY but today news has come in from Deadline that Kevin Costner is currently in negotiations to star in the flick for Universal Pictures. Neil Cross, who co-wrote Universal’s MAMA and is creator of the BBC series "Luther", has written the screenplay in his latest tie-up with del Toro.
We don't know a whole lot regarding the plot as everything is being kept tightly under wraps. What we do know is that MIDNIGHT DELIVERY is a thriller stemming from an original idea by del Toro, who is producing with David Linde for the latter’s Lava Bear Films. Right now there is no director attached but supposedly they are fast-tracking this one so that could all change very soon. That's all for now folks but hopefully we'll be learning a lot more about this one in the near future — anything with del Toro's name attached is worth keeping an eye on!
