Kevin changes representation….

According to the article by Mike Fleming at the following link:
Kevin has moved from CAA to WME (William Morris Endeavor Entertainment), signing with co-CEO and board member Patrick Whitesell. Kevin continues to be managed by One Talent Management’s J.J. Harris. Mike writes, “Costner isn’t the average movie star client who needs an agent to find him an acting job. He’s a self-generator whose need for an agency is to package and get funding for passion projects he writes, directs and stars in” and “WME will jump right into Costner’s quest to get funding so that he can next star in Learning Italian, a comedy with director Kevin Reynolds. Costner will play a CIA agent who has been stationed in an idyllic coastal town in Italy to keep an eye on a KGB agent there -- until both secret agencies order the two spies to return to their respective countries and cook up a pseudo-threat to justify their continued stays in Italy.” Also, “Costner…..wants to saddle up, direct and star in another Western, this one called Horizon. To hype the film, he set up at A&E a miniseries prequel that is being prepped to shoot in the spring.” Mike also writes that Kevin “recently co-starred in the John Wells-directed The Company Men, which premiered at Sundance to enthusiastic audiences and reviewers.”
