Kevin Costner, the iconic Oscar winner, is gearing up for another major project, showcasing his versatility as both an actor and producer. The 69-year-old star has secured a starring role in an upcoming feature film, which he will also produce. The untitled movie, adapted from a script owned by Costner himself, will be directed by Ariel Vromen, the filmmaker behind the 2016 thriller “Criminal.”
While details about the plot remain under wraps, fans can expect production to kick off in 2025, as reported by Deadline. Vromen expressed his excitement about reuniting with Costner for this passion project, highlighting the actor’s talent and dedication.
Costner’s commitment to his craft is evident in his upcoming projects. He is set to dazzle audiences with “Horizon: An American Saga,” a two-part movie franchise hitting theaters this year. The Western epic, directed, starred, and co-written by Costner alongside Jon Baird, promises to captivate viewers with its sweeping narrative and stellar performances.
However, Costner’s involvement in “Horizon” led to a scaled-back presence on the hit series “Yellowstone,” where he portrayed rancher John Dutton. Despite earning critical acclaim, including a Golden Globe, for his role in “Yellowstone,” Costner’s limited shooting schedule became a point of contention, particularly during his divorce proceedings with ex-wife Christine in 2023.
In a revealing testimony during a child support hearing, Costner expressed his desire to return for a sixth season of “Yellowstone” but cited financial and creative differences as reasons for his decision to step back. Nonetheless, fans can anticipate the premiere of the final installment of “Yellowstone” in November, marking the end of an era for the beloved series.
Amidst his professional endeavors, Costner found joy in personal milestones, including his 69th birthday celebration and the addition of a new furry family member—a puppy, which he affectionately introduced on Instagram.
As Costner continues to make waves in the entertainment industry, his upcoming projects and enduring legacy serve as a testament to his enduring talent and unwavering dedication to his craft.
