French academy to fete Kevin Costner

Thesp is in Paris with McG's 'Three Days to Kill'

Kevin Costner, who is starring in McG’s actioner “Three Days to Kill” in Paris, will receive an honorary Cesar from the French Academie des Arts et Techniques at the Feb. 22 ceremony.

The Cesars have always had a penchant for Hollywood thesps and helmers. Past honorary recipients include Quentin Tarantino, Dustin Hoffman, Meryl Streep and Clint Eastwood.

The nod pays tribute to Costner’s achievements as an actor, director and producer, and his contribution to movie history, including “Robin Hood,” “The Bodyguard,” “A Perfect World” and “The Intouchables.”

Costner is now on the shoot of EuropaCorp and Relativity-produced “Three Days to Kill,” penned by Luc Besson and Adi Hasak. He stars as a secret service agent who discovers he’s dying and decides to retire to reconnect with his estranged family.
