According to Deadline, Sienna Miller and Sam Worthington have joined Kevin Costner and Jamie Campbell Bower as cast members of Horizon. Costner will star in the historical epic, which is described as an American frontier epic, as well as directing the film for the first time since 2003. The filming is scheduled to begin later this month.
As stated in the story, Horizon spans a fifteen-year period, covering the “expansion and settlement of the American West before and after the Civil War.” In this story, a variety of perspectives will be used to explore interactions between indigenous Americans and colonizers prior to their arrival, as well as the dangers created by the natural elements in the American West.
Furthermore, Horizon is reported to be the first film in a trilogy. Among Miller’s most notable films are American Sniper, Foxcatcher, and Layer Cake. Recently, she appeared in Netflix’s Anatomy of a Scandal. As the star of Avatar, Worthington holds the highest global box office record over a decade later, and he will be returning later this year for the sequel.
In addition, he appeared in Under the Banner of Heaven, a critically acclaimed crime drama on Hulu. Worthington commented on his casting: “I am delighted and humbled to be going on this amazing and important journey with Kevin, who is an inspirational storyteller in the industry.”
It is an honor to be a part of this epic story with such a legendary actor and director at the helm. I am thrilled to be part of it..” With Dances with Wolves, Costner’s directorial debut also won the best picture at the Academy Awards. In Horizon, Costner co-wrote the script with Jon Baird.
This film is clearly a passion project for Costner, who stars, directs, writes, produces, and finances the film himself. Warner Bros. and New Line are set to release the film through Costner’s Territory Pictures company. A Utah shoot is set to begin at the end of the month for Horizon. We’ll keep you updated on the project at Collider.
