Kevin Costner will produce, finance and lend his voice to the online animated series “The Explorers Club.”
According to Variety, Costner intends to build a following and then turn “The Explorers Club” into a live-action feature he will topline.
Created, written and directed by Chris Baird, Jon Baird and Keith Quinn, the animated series is a collection of gothic stories that follow a group of Victorian-era adventurers as they travel to the darkest corners of the map.
The creators will have a feature script ready by the time the segments air on the Web. Costner plans to reprise his role as an explorer named Sloane, and he’ll have first crack at directing the film.
