Kevin Costner dances with two roles

7 August 2012

Kevin Costner is waltzing around two films, including the Jack Ryan reboot and action drama Three Days To Kill.

The Bodyguard star, who will next be seen as Jonathan 'Pa' Kent in Zack Snyder's Man Of Steel, is rumoured to be eyeing up a role in Kenneth Branagh's Jack Ryan film as a mentor and recruiter of the young Jack Ryan (to be played by Chris Pine), reported Deadline.

Kevin, who has reportedly passed on a role in from sports drama McFarland, is also said to have been offered the part of an assassin in Three Days To Kill, which is being produced by Luc Besson, with McG in talks to direct.

The 57-year-old is tipped to portray Ethan Renner, a government hitman with a terminal condition who chooses to take on one last mission so he can reunite with his daughter.

Kevin - whose last big-screen outing was in The Company Men alongside Ben Affleck and Tommy Lee Jones in 2010 - was nominated for a Primetime Emmy for outstanding lead actor for his performance as logging patriarch William Anderson 'Devil Anse' Hatfield in TV mini-series Hatfields And McCoys, which he also produced.
