Kevin Costner criminal

Kevin Costner is making one more movie to follow his recent spate of films that includes Man of Steel, Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, Three Days to Kill, and Draft Day. He’s already got two more films lined up or in progress: the Disney sports film McFarland, and a reunion with his Upside of Anger director Mike Binder for Black and White. Now there’s a new project. This new one is called Criminal, and whoa, that’s awesome — Costner playing a hardened street gangster would be great.

But hey, hold up there, bucko. This isn’t Criminal, like “Ed Brubaker’s Criminal.” There is a film in development based on one of the stories Brubaker and Sean Phillips created for the Criminal comic book series.

Coward is a lean and very mean story of robbery big and small, of double-crosses, and best intentions that are blown all to hell. Read More »
