"Man of Steel's" Kevin Costner is adding another film to his recent feature resurgence.
The thesp has closed a deal to star in Disney's sports drama "McFarland," that Niki Caro will direct for the studio.
This is the latest sports drama from Disney after pics like "Miracle," "Invincible" and "Remember the Titans."
Disney began negotiating with Costner to star in the film last summer.
The drama will be produced by Mayhem Pictures' Mark Ciardi and Gordon Gray, both behind "Invincible" and "Secretariat."
Costner is no stranger to the sports drama, of course, having already headlined "Field of Dreams," "Tin Cup" and "For the Love of the Game."
Costner has seen a revitalization in his career, starting with the huge success of the History Channel miniseries "Hatfields & McCoys" which won him an Emmy. Since then, Costner has been busy building his film slate with big roles in "Man of Steel," "Jack Ryan" and another sports pic, "Draft Day." He is currently filming "Black and White" with Octavia Spencer.
He's repped by WME and One Talent Management.
Disney declined to comment.
