Mickey Rourke continues his current career resurgence with a role in action thriller The Courier (as reported by The Wrap).

The Wrestler star joins the Watchmen’s Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Inglourious Basterd Til Schweiger in the story of a tough courier (Morgan) who finds himself having to avoid being picked off by corrupt federal agents, crooked cops and dangerous rivals when he’s assigned a job to deliver a briefcase to a notorious crime boss.

It does sounds suspiciously like a re-working of Jason Statham’s Transporter films, but with 3:10 to Yuma scribes Derek Haas and Michael Brandt onboard and Hany Abu-Assad (director of acclaimed drama Paradise Now) attached, any comparisons between the two films will probably be the main character’s job role.
