Kevin Costner is set to reprise his role as the Avatar: The Way of Water in the next season of the popular Western TV series. The film will be produced by Jon Baird, who is also expected to direct it.
Kevin Costner is bringing a major Stranger Things actor along for the ride, along with some other notable actors. For Horizon, he is also writing, starring in it, producing it, and self-financing.
Horizon is slated to be the beginning of a trilogy, with the first film chronicling a 15-year period of Western expansion and settlement around the Civil War era. The film will follow various characters as they encounter natural elements and the interactions they have with the indigenous peoples living on the land.
Kevin Costner hasn't been seen behind the camera in quite a long time, but it's Westerns. In 2003, he directed the post-apocalyptic adventure The Postman, which won seven Oscars, including Best Picture and Best Director for Costner.
As the release date nears, Kevin Costner is putting together a stellar cast for Horizon. Jamie Campbell Bower has had a fantastic year, including starring in another Netflix hit Anatomy of a Scandal and her participation in Apple TV+ Extrapolations' next climate change drama. Sam Worthington is expected to have a fantastic couple of years, as well as his role in the Avatar: The Way of Water.
Fans can look forward to Kevin Costner returning to his popular Western TV series Yellowstone before the end of 2022. The fifth season of Yellowstone will consist of 14 episodes, which will be split into two parts, although no release date has been announced.
