The three-time Golden Globe Awards winner Kevin Costner coming back with the second installment of his upcoming drama film series, “Horizon: An American Saga” but facing difficulties while finding a filming location in Utah.
Kevin Costner shared with a local outlet, St. George News about what are his wishes regarding the filming new upcoming film, “Every day, my dream was to film at this other place. We even built a suspension bridge,”.
“And we were going to crane our wagons 50 feet in the air over the river, drop them down on that location. So I had it on my head, we built it, we had the cranes out there. And then the big snowpack came. And everybody said, ‘The water’s gonna come up.” he added
“It broke my heart because losing my location turns me into a baby a little bit because I have my mind set on what it’s going to look like and how people will enjoy it,” Kevin Costner explained.
“I said, ‘Let’s run this river, the Santa Clara, all the way to the Virgin River.’ I was throwing prayers up on what was going to happen. I secretly didn’t want to have another place. But I knew the first place wasn’t going to work.” Kevin Costner said.
“It’s a good lesson for everybody; sometimes you just have to let some things go,” he said.
Shivwits Reservation Land Resources Manager Travis Duran praised Costner and his crew for treating the Shivwits land respectfully while filming.
“The best thing was working with Kevin’s crew. We’re all working together, and they were more active in asking what they should be careful of, We’re in cultural sites in a couple of the areas, which I pointed out, and they respected everything.” Duran said.
“Kevin’s people are great. So there was nothing that harmed anything; it’s just more of cleaning things up, which was good for the people.” Duran explained.
