After getting the chance to run through the world of heists and intrigue in The Brothers Bloom (wonderfully, I might add), Adrien Brody is getting into the underworld delivery business. The Hollywood Reporter posts that Mr. Brody is going to be pursued by cops and crime bosses alike when he stars in a new action flick called The Courier.

As the story goes, Brody will play "a daredevil courier trying to deliver a briefcase to an underworld figure who can't be found." Is he a daredevil for the ways he delivers packages, or a daredevil for taking on work from crime bosses? That remains to be seen. But the writing duo of Michael Brandt and Derek Haas (who helped out on both the 3:10 to Yuma and Wanted scripts) have written the screenplay and Russell Mulcahy is directing.

This means teaming one of my favorite actors with the director of the only film I ever walked out of (Ricochet). Since I was only 14 at the time, I'm prepared to give Mulcahy another chance, although The Scorpion King 2 and Resident Evil: Extinction make me a little nervous. But if the director of Heathers can also helm Hudson Hawk, anything is possible.
