Adrien Brody to star in ‘The Courier’

Adrien Brody will star in indie actioner “The Courier” with Russell Mulcahy directing.

The screenplay by Michael Brandt and Derek Haas, the team that also contributed to “Wanted” and “3:10 to Yuma,” centres on a daredevil courier trying to deliver a briefcase to an underworld figure who can’t be found.

The production, scheduled to begin filming in January in Louisiana and Las Vegas, will be produced by Dan Grodnick, Arclight managing director Gary Hamilton, Tucker Tooley, Vincent Newman and Arclight’s new head of production, Mike Gabrawy. Exec producers are Cary Brokaw, Brody and Al Munteanu.
