Kevin Costner has long been associated with the American West, and his upcoming Western saga, “Horizon: An American Saga,” is poised to be his Western swan song. Divided into four parts, the first two chapters are set to hit theaters within a few months of each other, offering audiences a chance to immerse themselves in the first half of the story without enduring lengthy waits between releases. The initial chapter is scheduled for release in mid-summer on June 28, followed by the second chapter approximately two months later on Aug. 16.

Costner’s deep-rooted passion for the Western genre is evident in his commitment to “Horizon,” which has been a project years in the making. Despite his recent success with “Yellowstone,” Costner’s affinity for Westerns predates his involvement in the acclaimed series. Throughout his illustrious career, he has been a prominent figure in Western films and television, making it a natural progression for him to spearhead a project of his own in the genre.

While “Yellowstone” undoubtedly played a role in rejuvenating Costner’s career and may have facilitated the development of “Horizon,” the two projects are distinct entities with no direct connection beyond Costner’s involvement. Although they share thematic similarities and feature Costner in leading roles, they occupy separate narrative universes and explore different storylines.
