Kevin Costner, the Academy Award-winning filmmaker, is set to return to feature film directing with New Line Cinema’s “Horizon: An American Saga.” The movie will be a comprehensive account of the Civil War expansion and settlement of the American West. Costner is not only co-writing the script with Jon Baird (“The Explorers Guild”) but also starring in the film and producing it through his company, Territory Pictures. Warner Bros. Pictures will distribute the movie. It has been announced that two films will be released in theaters next summer, with the first one scheduled for June 28, 2024, and the second on August 16, 2024.

In the great tradition of Warner Bros. Pictures’ iconic Westerns, “Horizon: An American Saga” delves into the allure of the Old West and how it was won and lost through the efforts of many. Spanning the four years of the Civil War, from 1861 to 1865, Costner’s ambitious cinematic adventure will take audiences on an emotional journey through a country at war with itself. The experience is portrayed through the perspectives of families, friends, and foes, all striving to understand what it truly means to be the United States of America.

Costner stars alongside an impressive ensemble cast that includes Sienna Miller, Sam Worthington, Jena Malone, Owen Crow Shoe, Tatanka Means, Ella Hunt, Tim Guinee, Danny Huston, Colin Cunningham, Scott Haze, Tom Payne, Abbey Lee, Michael Rooker, Will Patton, Georgia MacPhail, Douglas Smith, Luke Wilson, Isabelle Fuhrman, Jamie Campbell Bower, Alejandro Edda, Wasé Winyan Chief, Michael Anganaro, Angus Macfadyen, Jon Beavers, Alex Nibley, Kathleen Quinlan, Etienne Kellici, Amos Jason Charging Cloud, Bodhi Okuma Linton, Gregory Cruz, James Russo, JeffO’Hara, David O’Hara, Chris Conner, Leroy M. Silva, Bernardo Velasco, Tom Everett, Glynn Turman, Giovanni Ribisi, and more.

Jeff Goldstein, President of Warner Bros. Pictures Domestic Distribution, said, Together with Kevin, his team and his phenomenal cast, and our partners at New Line Cinema, we intend to make ‘Horizon’ the theatrical event of the summer. As vital a part of cinema’s history as ‘Dances With Wolves’ is, we believe Kevin only scratched the surface of that period, and we are thrilled to see him present an even deeper, more expansive view with these powerhouse stories.

Kevin Costner is returning to directing for the first time since his 2003 critically acclaimed hit “Open Range.” This new project revisits Civil War-era America, which was also the setting for his 1990 blockbuster and directorial debut, “Dances with Wolves.” The latter film won seven Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Director. Costner is producing the new project alongside Howard Kaplan and Mark Gillard, with Danny Peykoff, Robert Scannell, Armyan Bernstein, Charlie Lyons, Barry Berg, and Rod Lake serving as executive producers.

Kevin Costner is collaborating with director of photography J. Michael Muro (“Billionaire Boys Club,” “Parker”), production designer Derek R. Hill (“Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan,” “The Magnificent Seven”), editor Miklos Wright (“For All Mankind,” “Open Range”), and costume designer Lisa Lovaas (“Ambulance,” “Transformers: The Last Knight”). The music for the project is composed by Oscar nominee John Debney (“The Passion of the Christ,” “The Greatest Showman“).
