“I’d like to thank the Festival de Cannes for including my film Horizon, An American Saga in this year’s selection,” said Costner in a statement. “It’s been 20 years since I’ve had the pleasure of being on the Croisette. I’ve been waiting for the right time to return and I’m proud to say that this time has come. Horizon, An American Saga is a story that began 35 years ago, and I can’t think of a better place than Cannes to reveal to the world the result of such a wonderful adventure. The French have always supported films and believed deeply in filmmaking. Just as I believe deeply in my film.”

Costner is directing and starring in Horizon opposite a cast including Sienna Miller, Sam Worthington, Jena Malone, Abbey Lee, Michael Rooker, Danny Huston, Luke Wilson, Isabelle Fuhrman, Jeff Fahey, Will Patton, Tatanka Means, Owen Crow Shoe, Ella Hunt and Jamie Campbell Bower.

The plot spans the four years of the Civil War and according to the official logline, “explores the lure of the Old West and how it was won — and lost — through the blood, sweat and tears of many.”

Warner Bros. is set to release the first of the two Horizon films June 28, with the second coming out two months later, on Aug. 16.
