Oscar-winner Kevin Costner is back in the director's chair as he directs the much-awaited third movie in his Western saga: "Horizon: An American Saga." And on day one of the shoot, Costner charmed a new cast member—his yellow lab, Bobby—who was capturing hearts on set with his on-set antics.

Recently spotted on the "Horizon" set, Bobby quickly becomes a beloved figure among the crew, comfortably seated in Costner's director's chair. Sporting protective booties, this adorable puppy seems to be the perfect companion for Costner. He shared a delightful "Bobby Update" on Instagram, stating, "He's a natural on set," accompanied by a carousel of snapshots.

This isn't just a temporary visit for Bobby. Costner revealed earlier this year that he had welcomed Bobby into his family, expressing his affection: "I'm already in love with this special guy." Whether giving commands or simply adding to the on-set morale, Bobby's presence is a refreshing addition to the rigorous filming schedule.

Horizon's Dual Debut

Meanwhile, Costner is directing and stars in "Horizon," a script co-written with John Baird. The saga, which Costner has been developing for nearly three decades, reflects his profound respect for the Western genre.

The first part of "Horizon" will be shown on June 28, and the sequel is on August 16. In a recent interview with EW, Costner waxed lyrics about his boundless passion for the Western genre: "I just don't fall out of love with things I like.

I am always looking for the next great movie." His commitment to authenticity and storytelling shines through in "Horizon," which he insists is not merely a nostalgic nod but a vibrant addition to the canon. Funding "Horizon" independently, Costner continues a trend he started with his past projects, such as "Dances with Wolves" and "The Postman." His dedication to his craft and willingness to invest personally in his visions have earned him accolades and respect in the industry, including two Academy Awards for "Dances with Wolves." As "Horizon" prepares to make its mark on the silver screen, Kevin Costner and his new canine companion, Bobby, are set to captivate audiences, blending historical narratives with personal tales from the heart of the American West.
