Amber Heard Gets Three Days To Kill
She'll help Kevin Costner, at least

Amber Heard

Three Days To Kill boasts a high-concept plot spawned by Luc Besson and co-writer Adi Hasak and McG seated in the director’s chair, and the action thriller has already scored Kevin Costner and Hailee Steinfeld. Amber Heard is the latest to join their ranks.

Kill will star Costner as Ethan Runner, a Secret Service agent who is shocked to discover he’s dying. But then he’s tempted with the offer of a possibly wondrous drug that might just extend his life and give him more time with his daughter (Steinfeld).

There are just a couple of teeny, tiny complications, though: he has to go on one final mission as a condition of taking the treatment and, oh yes, the drug gives him incredibly weird hallucinations which will make carrying out the job that much more complicated.

Heard is set to play the woman who dangles the offer of the miracle drug in front of our hero. Last seen in The Rum Diary, she’ll next crop up in Robert Rodriguez action sequel Machete Kills (which should aptly prepare her for working from a Besson-penned script) and corporate thriller Paranoia alongside Liam Hemsworth.
