Costner plays U’s ‘Game’

Kevin Costner has committed to Universal Pictures’ “For the Love of the Game” for producers Sydney Pollack and Amy Robinson, sources said. The project will roll after Costner completes his two Warner Bros. obligations, one of which is “The Postman.”

“For the Love of the Game,” scripted by Dana Stevens, is about a washed-up pitcher who pitches a perfect game. He flashes back to what went wrong with his career while he’s mowing down opposing batters. Costner was circling the project earlier this year (Daily Variety, Oct. 22).

The project is based on the novel by Michael Shaara. Robinson and Pollack apparently found the project at the same time and agreed to set it up at Universal together. The two previously partnered on “White Palace,” which Universal released.

Costner, who is directing and starring in “The Postman,” will start that picture early next year. Costner’s and Jim Wilson’s Tig Prods. is producing in conjunction with Steve Tisch.

Harley Williams reps Costner.
