In a conversation with Golden DerbyKevin Costner was asked what he believes are Taylor Sheridan’s strengths as a writer. Costner replied, “I think he’s a typewriter, and they have a lot of heart and a lot of humor that can come out of that. He went on to add, “He creates worthy opponents so that no one is smarter than the rest and everyone else is stupid and becomes a convenience to take down. I think he did. makes a good game of back and forth between people and he loves that world. I love the outdoors in exactly the same way.”
In a video with ParamountCostner also recalls when Sheridan gave him “Yellowstone” by asking him if he wanted to “make a feature-length movie”. This is agreed upon by Costner, who says, “the idea of letting the story live a little longer with the character has always appealed to me.” The characters’ love for details, combined with mutual interest in a Western setting, seems to have made for a wonderful partnership between the pair. Considering “Yellowstone” is in its fourth season with no signs of slowing down, it seems like something is working between Sheridan and Costner.
