Jeffrey Dean Morgan to star in The Courier
Posted by: Nathan Swank
After years of struggling as bit parts in television, Jeffrey Dean Morgan has really exploded into film. Last year, he had a breakout role as The Comedian in WATCHMEN. This year, he had the lead in THE LOSERS. In the next year, he will be staring in RED DAWN, THE RESIDENT, THE FIELDS, THE UNBLINKING EYE and PEACE, LOVE, & MISUNDERSTANDING. Now he will be adding THE COURIER to the long list of projects.
The action film is about the best courier (Morgan) who has never missed a drop. He is now on his toughest mission delivering a briefcase to a notorious underworld figure while being pursued by corrupt cops, feds and crime bosses. Hany Abu-Assad will direct from a script by Derek Haas. Jeffrey Dean Morgan will also be an executive producer. I think the film sounds a little similar to Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s upcoming PREMIUM RUSH.
