Kevin Costner is set to direct and star in "A Little War of Our Own," an action-adventure taking place during World War II. He'll play a sheriff and Beacon Pictures is fully financing.
Armyan Bernstein of Beacon will produce, making the fourth collaboration between him and Cosnter. They worked together last on 2003's "Open Range" for Disney.
"A Little War of Our Own" is written by Dan Gordon and tells of a sheriff who must try his best at keeping his town from falling into violence. The other lead role is that of a German U-Boat commander. Beacon and Costner are beginning to cast.
Suzann Ellis, Jasa Abreo and Peter Almond are to serve as executive producers.
