Yellowstone star Kevin Costner is set to produce and star in an as-yet-untitled film which is described as the actor's "longtime passion project".

Costner has enlisted his friend and one-time collaborator Ariel Vromen to direct the project which has seemingly been in the pipeline for some time.

Speaking about the movie, Vromen said in a statement to Deadline: "I could not be more honoured to be reunited with my friend and collaborator, especially on Kevin's longtime passion project."

Plot details for the film, which is set to begin production in early 2025, are under wraps with no further details currently available.

It will mark the second film Costner and Vromen have made together, having previously collaborated on the 2016 action thriller Criminal which co-starred Tommy Lee Jones and Gary Oldman.

Vromen is currently awaiting the release of his drama 1992 which tells the story of the 1992 Los Angeles riots. The film stars the late Ray Liotta alongside Tyrese Gibson and Scott Eastwood.

Costner is currently preparing for the release of his upcoming movie Horizon: An American Saga which he has directed, co-written, produced and starred in.

Starring Sienna Miller, Jena Malone, Jamie Campbell Bower, Sam Worthington, and Luke Wilson alongside Costner, the film is set around the time of the American Civil War and details the expansion of the American West.
