Kevin Costner Eyes ‘Delivery’ For Universal

Guillermo del Toro will produce

He may play Superman’s dad in “Man of Steel,” but people may start thinking Kevin Costner is super human if keeps adding more films to his ever-growing film slate.

Costner is in negotiations to star in Universal’s “Midnight Delivery,” which Guillermo del Toro is producing through his Del Toro Productions along with David Linde for his Lava Bear Films.

Neil Cross penned the script, based on an idea by del Toro. Gary Ungar, Tory Metzger and Russell Ackerman are exec producing.

Pic follows a father who becomes a drug mule to save his son’s life. Universal’s executive vice president of production Scott Bernstein and creative executive Sara Scott will oversee the project.

Since “Man of Steel” bowed, Costner has already begun shaping his upcoming schedule. He is currently filming “Black & White” with Octavia Spencer and just closed a deal to star in the Disney pic “MacFarland,” which he will shoot this fall.

In the last year, Costner has seen a resurgence in his career that will continue with Paramount’s “Jack Ryan” and Lionsgate’s “Draft Day,” both of which are expected to bow in the next year. He is repped by WME and One Talent Management.
