Cannes Film Festival: Kevin Costner Will Guest on THR’s ‘Awards Chatter’ Podcast Live From the Palais

The Hollywood Reporter and Campari are pleased to invite attendees of the upcoming Cannes Film Festival to a very special event at the fest: a live in-depth interview with Kevin Costner, the legendary actor and Oscar-winning filmmaker, followed by a cocktail reception.

On Sunday, May 19, at 11:30am Cannes time, Costner will sit down with THR’s executive awards editor Scott Feinberg in the Campari Lounge of the Palais to record an episode of THR’s Awards Chatter podcast that will encompass his life, career and the film that brings him to the Croisette this year: Horizon: An American Saga – Chapter 1. He co-wrote, produced, directed and stars in the epic western. (The Warner Bros. film will premiere out of competition at the fest on May 19 en route to a June 28 theatrical release.)
