Kevin Costner Planning Ten Hour Western


During a recent interview with Variety, Kevin Costner revealed his plans for a new epic Western that would run for ten hours:

On planning a new Western: “I have one. I’ve been working on it. It’s about 10 hours long, how about that? Maybe I’ll make three features out of it. There’s a fourth one, too, so it’s truly a saga. I could do TV, or I could also make it like every six months, have a big western that’s tied together like ‘Jean de Florette’ and ‘Manon of the Spring.’ I think those are fun to watch.”

On his love of the genre: “It comes in the language. Everyone’s looking for the shootout in a western, but the strength of them is what gets said leading up to things. There is an oddity about how people talk, yet it’s our Shakespeare, the American west.”
