Kevin Costner’s Sports Drama ‘McFarland USA’ Pushed to 2015

Disney has pushed the release of Kevin Costner’s sports drama “McFarland USA” back three months from Nov. 21 to Feb. 20.

McFarland USA,” based on a true story, centers on a coach in a predominantly Hispanic California town who creates a high school track team that overcomes social and physical hurdles to become champions during the 1980s.

The drama — which had been previously titled “McFarland” — is produced by Mayhem Pictures’ Mark Ciardi and Gordon Gray, whose credits include “Million Dollar Arm,” “Invincible” and “Secretariat.”

Two other films have already been dated for Feb. 20 — Relativity’s “Jane Got A Gun,” starring Ewan McGregor and Natalie Portman, and Open Road’s “The Gunman,” starring Sean Penn, Javier Bardem and Idris Elba.

Costner recently starred in another sports drama — Lionsgate’s “Draft Day,” which delivered middling returns with about $29 million domestically.
