First, if you haven’t seen Open Range (2002), check it out, stat. Then you’ll understand why I’m labelling this ‘good news’. Kevin Costner may be wasting his time recently with crap like 3 Days To Kill (review by PvtCaboose91 here) so to come back to doing what he does best…? Most welcome.
Here’s what he told Collider:
“I’ve got this Western that I think I could make. I actually have this idea to make them all at once and release one on Memorial Day, one on Thanksgiving, and then one on the Fourth of July, all within a 12 month span, because it’s all the same story but it truly is a journey, with a fourth movie coming right after.
Will I be able to do that? I don’t know. But that’s what I think about, that’s what I try to do. And people go, ‘Oh that’s really interesting, Kevin. We don’t think we can do that.’ And I’m thinking ‘Man, that’s a really good idea.’ I thought that was a true ongoing series, or sequel if you will, that actually was an honest one. A second one wasn’t invented because the first one made a little money.”
I don’t know about the rest of you but I’ve felt there has been a bit of a western drought in recent years. Or maybe I’ve just missed ’em. If there any post-Open Range out there worth mentioning, sound off.
