MESSAGE IN A BOTTLE

KEVIN COSTNER (Garret Blake / Producer) exhibited exceptional filmmaking abilities by producing, directing and starring in Dances With Wolves, which won seven Academy Awards in 1991, including Best Picture and Best Director. Most recently he produced, directed and starred in The Postman.

In 1996, Costner re-teamed with his Bull Durham director, Ron Shelton, for the romantic comedy Tin Cup, which provided the filmmaker with a totally different type of role than in his previous effort, as the Mariner in the action epic Waterworld. Prior to Waterworld, Costner worked with Lawrence Kasdan in the historical Western Wyatt Earp. He had previously worked with Kasdan on the gunslinger saga Silverado and, early in his career, co-starred in the contemporary comedy-drama The Big Chill, from which his role was later edited out.

As an action hero, Costner played the title character in The Bodyguard, which he produced from a script by Kasdan. He received critical praise for his performance as an escaped convict opposite Clint Eastwood in the drama A Perfect World, and starred with Elijah Wood in the Vietnam parable The War.

His other notable roles in both action and drama include New Orleans prosecutor Jim Garrison in Oliver Stone's JFK, the legendary Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, the stoic lawman Elliott Ness in Brian DePalma's The Untouchables and the enigmatic Pentagon attache in No Way Out.

A natural athlete, Costner has applied those talents prior to Tin Cup in the baseball comedy Bull Durham, the comedy-drama Field of Dreams and the bicycle racing saga American Flyers. His upcoming projects include the role of Billy Chappel, a pitcher re-examining his career, in For Love of the Game; the film is directed by Sam Raimi and also stars Kelly Preston.
