Kevin Costner’s New Western Struggle Makes His Yellowstone Exit Look Even Worse

Kevin Costner’s highly-publicized exit from the massively popular Western drama Yellowstone for his passion project Horizon: An American Saga is beginning to look like a poor decision, thanks to a mounting pile of problems for the upcoming movie. Horizon: An American Saga is planned to be a four-part epic, with Parts 1 and 2 releasing just six weeks apart in the summer of 2024, and filming for Part 3 already underway. However, the future of the entire saga may be in jeopardy before the first movie even hits theaters.

Thanks in part to a litany of bad reviews for Horizon: An American Saga – Part 1, the movie is poised to be a massive failure at the box office. Horizon’s budget has reportedly swollen to $100 million for just the first two parts, with Costner pitching in a massive amount of his own money to make the project a reality. Unfortunately, the first in his planned series of four movies is projected to make back only a fraction of the overall budget, and could prove that it was a massive mistake for Costner to leave his hit Taylor Sheridan show.

Lack of awareness, terrible reviews, and poor box office projections for the first two parts of Horizon: An American Saga cast doubt over whether the saga will be finished at all. The massive and exciting cast of Horizon will probably not be enough to bring audiences to the theaters, but there may be hope for the four-part series. It will need to have legs at the box office to stand any chance of continuing, as Costner won’t be able to fund the project’s completion without the support of a strong box office showing from the first two parts.

Ironically, one of the possible saviors of Horizon: An American Saga could in fact be Yellowstone. The show’s incredible popularity proved that there is still an appetite for Western drama with the modern viewing audience, and it’s that very same audience that could turn out for Horizon. That audience’s familiarity and affinity for Costner could go a long way towards getting them to the theater for the first part of Horizon: An American Saga, but admittedly the prospects for the saga look dim
