Anyone expectant of Darkest Hour and Hunter Killer actor Gary Oldman staking his claim as a prime choice for cinema villainy won’t be let down anytime soon. He’ll be in Rise Of The Footsoldier 3 director Zackery Adler’s newest, The Courier, another in the action genre for actress Olga Kurylenko of 007 franchise and Momentum fame.
As Andrea Wiseman at Deadline reports exclusively on Tuesday, Oldman will play the ruthless crime lord whose actions are the subject of a key witness now marked for death. The method? A package to be delivered by Kurylenko’s title character unbeknowst of its contents.
Signature Films steers production to next month with new UK-based Rollercoaster Angel Productions. Additional casting is under way, with Andy Conway and Nicky Tate penning the screenplay.
Final Score producer Marc Goldberg will produce next to James Edward Barker whose Mara also starred Kurylenko, and with David Haring (Pandas) and Andrew Pendergast (An American Exorcism) producing. Douglas Urbanski (Darkest Hour), Oldman’s long-term producing partner will exec produce.
