Kurt Russell to Star in Undying

Kurt Russell's been absent from the big screen since playing a real bad dude in Quentin Tarantino's Death Proof, but now he's heading back in front of the cameras with Undying (also known as Reaper). Media 8 Entertainment just announced Russell will be starring in the supernatural thriller written by Gary Whitta (The Book of Eli) and set to begin shooting this fall.

In the press release, Media 8 Entertainment President Stewart Hall had this to say about his lead actor: "We needed the right actor to bring this material to the screen, and Kurt Russell is perfect for this role. Kurt is one of Hollywood's most iconic leading men - from his work starring in legendary films like Escape From New York, Stargate, and Big Trouble in Little China, he is truly one of the few actors who audiences continually embrace as a real hero."

Russell will play a private investigator named Virgil Lone in the neo-noir thriller. After a "darkly beautiful and mysterious" woman hires him, Virgil is "suddenly immersed in a surreal underworld, one where the boundaries of life and death - as well as right and wrong - are completely blurred."

Russell's also rumored to be interested in starring in a film based on the tragic events that took place in Waco, Texas in 1993 when the Branch Davidian cult was engaged in a stand-off with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
