Kevin Costner In Black And White
Reuniting with director Mike Binder

Kevin Costner

There comes a time in every star's life when he's been around long enough to start playing grandad roles. Fair play to Kevin Costner then, who'll be Clark Kent's pa in Man Of Steel and who will be moving up a generation for the rather smaller scale Black And White. The film's director is Costner's Upside Of Anger collaborator Mike Binder.

Binder also wrote the screenplay, which involves Costner in a racially-charged custody battle. Costner's character lost his daughter in labour, and since the subsequent death of his wife he has been bringing up his mixed-race granddaughter alone. When the child's paternal grandmother shows up to make her own claim, tensions flare over the question of where the child should be raised, and who she should be raised with.

Not quite as broad a canvas as Costner's recent Superman and Jack Ryan form then, but it sounds like he'll be doing more of the dramatic heavy-lifting in this one. Not bad for an old-timer (sorry Mr Costner! You've still got it). He'll also produce Black And White under his Treehouse banner, and shooting will take place in New Orleans later this summer.

real actor
he's just quietly gone about acting in films as opposed to getting lots of plastic surgery done, drinking protein shakes and firing huge guns at people like some others of his age or older seem to feel the need to do. granted Kev was never an action star but he did his fair share of running about and held a gun once in a while. but he always made quality movies - Field of Dreams, No Way Out, JFK, Dances with Wolves, Bull Durham, Tin Cup, Open Range... Hey, I even liked Robin Hood! nice to see More
