Costner Talks “Horizon” Shoot & TV Future SuperNayr

Warner Bros. Pictures

Kevin Costner has done an extensive interview with Deadline today that’s straight up about the actor’s film and TV plans for the future – including “Yellowstone” talk and plans for the third and fourth parts of his “Horizon” saga.

With “Horizon,” Costner spent $24 million of his own money to help fund the first two of four planned R-rated post-Civil War western films with the first part to premiere at Cannes next month. The second part will release in cinemas in August.

Filming on the third and fourth parts is expected to run for six months through the back half of this year and Costner tells the outlet he’s got a start date in mind but doesn’t have the money to film those last two parts yet:

“I wanted to start April 25th, but I’ve got to find the money. I wanted to start May 6th, but I needed to find the money. I’ve moved myself to May 13th, and I’m going to start my movie. I don’t give a s— now. I’m just going to start it.”

He indicates budget wise by the time he gets to the fourth film the budget for the saga will be over $100 million. He also says the first film is locked but the second he’s still cutting and both the films are hovering at just under the three hour mark each.

He was also asked about where things stand with “Yellowstone” and his potential return for the back half of the fifth season. Costner says:

“I made a contract for seasons five, six and seven. In February, after a two- or three-month negotiation, they made another contract. They wanted to redo that one, and instead of seasons six and seven, it was 5A and 5B, and maybe we’ll do six.

They weren’t able to make those. Horizon was set in the middle, but Yellowstone was first position. I fit [Horizon] into the gaps. They just kept moving their gaps.

I don’t want to get down in the gutter with the Yellowstone thing but what I’m telling you is straight up… if you know me well enough, I made Yellowstone the first priority, and to insinuate anything else would be wrong.
