Adrien Brody has signed on to play the lead in Russell Mulcahy’s action movie The Courier.
Written by Wanted’s Michael Brandt and Derek Haas, it follows a carrier who has to fight his way across country to deliver a briefcase to an underworld kingpin.
Trouble is, there are corrupt cops and rival gang members chasing him at every turn, reports Variety .
It kicks off shooting in January and apparently it really is an indie action pic, funded by Arclight Films – and sounds like Brody wants in on a little of Jason Statham’s work.
Let’s just hope he hasn’t crossed the Stath – otherwise the film will end up being retitled The Limp.
