One-time box office draw Kevin Costner is going through a career renaissance as of late, picking up an Emmy for History’s “The Hatfields and McCoy,” and booking key supporting roles in the upcoming blockbusters “Man of Steel” and “Jack Ryan.” His next starring role, the McG-directed “Three Days to Kill,” is now set to be released in early 2014.
