LOS ANGELES, March 16 (UPI) -- Oscar winner William Hurt will appear opposite Kevin Costner in MGM's "Mr. Brooks," it was reported Thursday.

The script was co-written by Bruce Evans, who will also direct the thriller.

Hurt won his Oscar for "Kiss of the Spiderwoman" in 1985.

"Mr. Brooks" is expected to start filming in Louisiana next month.
