Kevin Costner is in talks to work on a new thriller called Midnight Delivery, which is being produced by Guillermo del Toro.

The Hollywood Reporter says the film tells the story of a father, which is the role Costner is considering, who tries to save his daughter from a Colombian gang by trafficking cocaine to London.

The script has been co-written by del Toro and the creator of Luther, Neil Cross.

Del Toro will next direct Crimson Peak which starts shooting in January 2014 with Midnight Delivery scheduled for next autumn.

Costner was most recently seen in Man of Steel playing Jonathan Kent.
