Kevin Costner promotes the western he directed, “Horizon,” at the Cannes Film Festival. He cast his son in one of the roles. This is Hayes Costner’s debut.

“Horizon. Chapter 1” is the first part of a four-part saga that Kevin Costner has been trying to make for twenty years! The film received a seven-minute standing ovation at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. The three-hour saga about the hardships of European colonists in North America is scheduled to be released in cinemas in June, with the second part already filmed in August.

The cast included Sienna Miller, Sam Worthington and Giovanni Ribisi. The film also featured, among others, 15-year-old Hayes Costner. – There are young people who would do anything to be in a movie, and I want these kids to be in them. If my children are not interested in this business, I am not going to just give them something because I know that there are other people for whom this is a dream – says the director/father in an interview with “Metro”.

However, the rest of his statement proves that he had his own interest in casting his son. – I’m also a father and it was just a spur of the moment decision, I wanted him to be close to me. I was away from home, I needed to be close to my family and this was a way to trap him. I thought he was just beautiful in the movie, adds Kevin Costner. Hayes Costner appeared with the rest of the filmmakers in Cannes. More photos can be found in the gallery.
