Kevin Costner To Make A Midnight Delivery

8 November 2013 12:04 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The career resurgence train rolls along for Kevin Costner, as this week sees him taking the lead role in Midnight Delivery for producer Guillermo del Toro. The film is set to be directed by Otto Bathurst, who has done some work on television but will be making his feature debut with this one.

The plot makes it sound as if Costner will be headed into Liam Neeson’s lucrative revenge thriller territory, as it concerns a father (Costner) who is trafficking cocaine on the eponymous flight to save his estranged daughter from a Mexican drug cartel. The script was written by Neil Cross, best known as the creator of the BBC One series Luther.

Midnight Delivery has me particularly excited because I’m thinking Bathurst could be another one of del Toro’s directorial discoveries, in the vein of Juan Antonio Bayona (The Orphanage) and Andres Muschietti (Mama). Plus, it »

Otto Bathhurst Will Direct Midnight Delivery

7 November 2013 10:40 AM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Guillermo del Toro is famous for being able to juggle hundreds (well, lots) of projects in the works at any one time. Of course, given his workload, there are only so many of the films that he can actually direct, so more often than not he stays as a producer and tracks down talent to bring them to life. He’s now landed on Peaky Blinders director Otto Bathurst to make drug drama Midnight Delivery, which will star Kevin Costner.Bathurst seems like a good pairing, given that the script is by Luther’s Neil Cross (who worked with del Toro on Mama). Midnight Delivery, which was first announced back in 2010, sees Costner as a father who must try to save his estranged daughter by trafficking a Colombian gang’s cocaine to London on a red-eye flight.It’s the first shot at big screen worth for Bathurst, who has »

Doctor Who: Tardis Landing in New Zealand?

11 September 2013 1:33 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

The Universe is a big place – what could possibly result in The Doctor careening his chaotic way through to ‘little ole’ New Zealand? Or more correctly – why would the T.A.R.D.I.S. think he needed to be there?

New Zealand has a long and loving relationship with the last Time Lord of Gallifrey. A part of the British Commonwealth, it was the first country outside of the UK to broadcast the BBC’s premier Saturday night show, in September 1964.

Continuous repeats – partnered with oft-delayed broadcasts of newer episodes throughout the decades – resulted in the The Timelords’ 1988 single ‘Doctorin’ The Tardis’ reaching Number One in the New Zealand music charts. New Zealand is the only country outside of the UK able to boast this magnificent feat. Kiwi ‘Whovians’ continue to form a devoted part of the Doctor Who fanbase to this day, with Facebook pages dedicated to bringing »

‘Luther’ Season 3 Review: Was It A Good Ending to a Great Series?

9 September 2013 12:25 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

[Warning - Major Spoilers Follow!!!]

-

Luther season 3 is sure to be debated like so many other series before it that have been accused (by some viewers) of deviating too far from center in later seasons. With just 4 episodes in which to close the saga of Dci John Luther (Idris Elba) there was much storytelling to be done, and showrunner Neil Cross split the season into two-episode halves, which both managed to sustain the style, tone, and twists that make Luther a police drama unlike almost any other (for better or worse). And yet, it often felt like somewhere lost in middle was the character that drove the series in the ...

'Luther' story is not over, says creator Neil Cross

9 September 2013 5:10 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Luther creator Neil Cross has said that the story of the show's lead character John Luther (Idris Elba) is not over.

Cross told Entertainment Weekly that he is still pursuing "lots of avenues" with regards to producing a Luther movie.

"We really want to do it," he said. "And we've got lots of avenues that would allow us to do it."

Luther's third series finale - believed to be the show's final episode - ended with John ditching his trademark coat and departing with Alice (Ruth Wilson).

"I don't think Alice and Luther's story is over," Cross said. "Which by definition means I can't even give you so much as a hint [of what happens next] - even a hint would spoil it."

Series star Wilson recently said that she hopes Luther will "carry on someday", while Idris Elba has claimed that the third series "wasn't... designed to [serve as] closure" for the show. »
