Kevin Costner may direct/star in a new Western mini-series...or may not

Kevin Costner - While Kevin Costner is executive producing a new A&E Western mini-series event, he's not as sure if he'll be directing any of it or even if he'll be appearing in it. It all depends on the script. So he's not sure if it'll be good enough to bother with beyond his current EP duties?

Come on, Kevin. This is A&E. Remember their first, and only so far, mini-series The Andromeda Strain? Yeah, I actually watched it and it was horrible! Which means this one simply has to be better. Right? It can't be much worse. Truly. It can't.

Actually, I have confidence that Costner can help this to not suck, because if there's one thing he loves besides baseball, it's westerns. This one features "a post-Civil War story concerning a major conflict in the settlement of the West." Which sounds incredibly vague.

Probably have some guys on horses riding around. Maybe a few Indians as well. Maybe the conflict is over where to build America's first baseball field. That's Costner gold right there.

The Andromeda Strain may have sucked (well, there's no maybe, it really did suck), but A&E also produced the western, Broken Trail, with Robert Duvall. I'm not much of a western fan myself, but this was a great movie.
