Another new movie for Kevin? 'Midnight Delivery'.... is reporting that Kevin is in talks to play "a father who becomes a drug mule to save his son’s life" in the movie 'Midnight Delivery' written by Neil Cross, based on an idea by Guillermo del Toro who will direct and produce through his Del Toro Productions along with David Linde for his Lava Bear Films. Gary Ungar and Russell Ackerman are executive producing. Universal’s executive vice president of production Scott Bernstein and creative executive Sara Scott will oversee the project.

According to the article by the, 'Midnight Delivery' is planning a Fall shoot. Del Toro is prepping for a shoot of 'Crimson Peak' in January 2014. The 'McFarland' movie is also scheduled for a Fall shoot so will be interesting to see how all this plays out! This article also says Kevin will play a father who "attempts to save his estranged daughter from a Colombian gang by trafficking cocaine to London on a midnight flight." So not sure which synopsis is correct!
