Adrien Brody: Action Hero

adrien_brodySo, despite his being upstaged by a giant ape several years ago, “action hero” isn’t quite the first phrase that comes to mind when I think of Adrien Brody (not that I really think about Adrien Brody much) — but according to Variety, he’ll be starring in The Courier, an “indie actioner” from Wanted screenwriters Michael Brandt and Derek Haas… and director Russell Mulcahy (Resident Evil: Extinction, Scorpion King 2). Did I lose you with that last bit? Yeah, I probably did.

The film “centers on a daredevil courier who’s pursued across the country by corrupt cops and rival crime bosses when he has to deliver a briefcase to a notorious underworld figure who can’t be found.” Hopefully he won’t insist on driving his own car.

Shooting begins in January.
