"I'm looking to direct a western," says Costner. "They don't like financing them, but I'll figure it out. It's a genre that's really worthy, really entertaining. I think they're hard to pull off, and I like that." I couldn't agree more with him there. I love westerns and they seem to become more and more scarce with each passing year. The ones that do get released -- last year's terrific The Proposition comes to mind -- tend to be smaller films, although the upcoming 3:10 to Yuma and The Assassination of Jesse James By the Coward Robert Ford might help bring some heat to the genre. Costner has directed three movies. Two of them -- Dances With Wolves and Open Range were westerns. The other was The Postman. Wolves was a smash success and won seven Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Director. Open Range was really entertaining and made decent money. The Postman was...The Postman. Can you blame Costner for wanting to return to the sweet bosom of the western? Hey, anything that keeps him from making another movie about a mailman attempting to restore civilization in a post-Apocalyptic world sounds like a winner to me!
