After a lenghty break KEVIN COSTNER is to direct and star in the film ...

"A Little War of Our Own," penned by Dan Gordon, centers on a sheriff who must try to keep a town from exploding into violence. Beacon and Costner are beginning to cast, including picture's of the other lead role ... a German U-boat commander.

Kevin Costner will direct and star in action-adventure "A Little War of Our Own," portraying a sheriff during World War II. Beacon Pictures is fully financing.
Beacon topper Armyan Bern­stein will produce in his fourth teaming with Costner and their first since 2003's "Open Range" for Disney. Production is scheduled for the autumn.
Suzann Ellis, Jasa Abreo and Peter Almond will executive produce. IM Global is handling foreign sales and is introducing the project to distributors at Berlin's European Film Market this week.

"This has been a dream project for Kevin and I for years," Bernstein said. "The themes are timeless: war, peace and reconciliation. The canvas is epic.  Look at the movies Kevin has directed."
Costner won Oscars for best picture and director for "Dances With Wolves."

He starred in "The Company Men," which screened at Sundance last month alongside Ben Affleck and Tommy Lee Jones.
