The actor’s team vehemently refutes rumours that he is delaying the production of the remaining episodes of the current season of “Yellowstone.”
Trouble has reportedly been developing on the Paramount Network drama’s set because the 68-year-old main actor has been eager to reduce the number of days he spends filming on location in Montana, according to a shocking article published earlier this month.
While Costner himself hasn’t addressed the issue, his lawyer has. Speaking to Puck in a piece published Tuesday, Marty Singer said the reports about his client are “ridiculous.”
“The idea that Kevin was only willing to work one week on the second half of season five of ‘Yellowstone’ is an absolute lie,” the actor’s litigator said.
“It’s ridiculous — and anyone suggesting it shouldn’t be believed for one second. As everyone who knows anything about Kevin is well aware, he is incredibly passionate about the show and has always gone way above and beyond to ensure its success.”

In response to Singer, Paramount doubled down on the vague statement it shared last week. A representative from the network told Puck: “As we previously stated, Kevin has been a key component of the success of our ‘Yellowstone’ series, and we hope that continues from here on out.”
According to Deadline, Costner is in a stalemate over his shooting dates, maybe because he is working on a Western epic of his own that he is directing, co-writing, and starring in. As a result, the show may terminate after its current fifth season.
