His role in in John Wells’s feature debut The Company Men alongside Ben Affleck and Tommy Lee Jones, which showed at Sundance last month, garnered a positive response and we’ve learned a little more about his next project.
Today Variety are reporting that Costner has secured funding and is about to cast a dream project of his, A Little War of Our Own, which focuses on a sheriff in World War 2 trying to maintain control over a town rapidly falling into chaos.
Armyan Bernstein, the producer and long time Costner collaborator, was quoted,
“This has been a dream project for Kevin and I for years,” Bernstein said. “The themes are timeless — war, peace and reconciliation. The canvas is epic — look at the movies Kevin has directed.”
Costner will star and direct, his first dual role since 2003’s Open Range, and the script is being written by Dan Gordon.
