3 Days to Kill - McG Announces Director's Cut
Liam Neeson played the role model. Even when the age of 50 has been passed and a solid resume with serious roles shows artistic qualities, a trip into the world of rather shallow action films can be successfully undertaken. Since Taken, Neeson is sought after for physical roles once again (most recently in Non-Stop).
Kevin Costner, who was relatively absent from the leading man limelight in recent years (except for Mr. Brooks), now tries to improve his image with 3 Days to Kill. Written and produced by Luc Besson, it starts in the US these days and other markets are soon to follow. For a moderate budget of $28 million and equipped with a PG-13 rating, the film should manage to make back its investment and then some.
But Luc Besson and the PG-13 rating are two opposites that don't go well together. Censorship has been an issue in several of his productions (Taken 1+2, Colombiana, Lockout, and others being among them). Even though director McG doesn't mention anything in that direction during the interview with Collider, he does talk about another reason why fans should get their hopes up that some longer version might come their way on home video:
That still leaves room for non-PG-13 violence and nudity so it might be better to rule nothing out just yet.
