Costner Suing Production Company

Kevin Costner ExpressIndia reports that Kevin Costner is suing Ascendant Pictures for breach of contract. Costner claims that he had an oral contract to star in "Taming Ben Taylor," a romantic comedy about a gruff divorcee who fights a golf course that is seeking to grab his land. Costner is suing for $8 million.

Ascendant produced 16 major films since its creation in 2002. Included in that number is "The Upside of Anger" the last successful Costner flick (and the first one in long time). It seems that Costner is biting the hand that feeds him decent projects. Furthermore, he should probably be thanking them, as I didn't see the word "baseball" in the description of "Taming Ben Taylor," therefore it could not possibly be successful. --Terrence Ryan
