Back in August, we reported that Jeffrey Dean Morgan would star in The Courier, a film about a bagman attempting to deliver a mysterious briefcase while crooked cops, gangsters, and federal agents try to jack him. Now we know who will play these shady characters. It’s been announced that Mickey Rourke and Til Schweiger have joined the cast. This is fantastic casting. We all know what Mickey Rourke is capable of, and Til Schweiger was a highlight of Inglourious Basterds.
Production begins later this month in New Orleans, but don’t tell Jason Statham. If he hears there’s a film about an expert bagman going on, he may just assume he’s the star. Things could get awkward if he shows up and asks for a call sheet. (The Wrap)
