The Explorers Guild, an adventure based series, combines Costner’s passion for history, adventure and storytelling.
Costner described his latest project, “A heroic quest with the vivid wildness of Jules Verne, and steeped in world history but with mystical overtones, I believe that The Explorers Guild series will engage readers of all ages in a multi-generational experience that will lend itself to a host of entertainment platforms. As a storyteller and filmmaker, I am intrigued by the inherent resourcefulness, wit, and at times violent nature these characters embody, and I am truly excited to partner with Judith Curr and her team at Atria to bring this epic tale to readers around the world.”
The project will begin with traditional media, as a series of books, developing into an animated series followed by live action theatrical film which Costner intends to produce and star in. This exciting new venture will be produced and developed by art director Jon Baird and illustrated by Rick Ross. The series will have a broad audience, “from young adult to mature mystery and adventure enthusiasts.”
The illustrated adventure series will debut in 2014. Atria has released a brief overview of the series.
“Behind the staid rooms of an old world gentlemen's club operates a darker, more mysterious organization: The Explorers Guild, a clandestine group of adventurers who seek out the places where light gives way to shadow and reason is usurped by myth. The secrets of this unknown world are hidden in mountain ranges and lost in deserts, sunk to the ocean floor and lodged deep beneath polar ice. The aim of The Explorers Guild: to discover the mysteries that lie beyond the boundaries of the known world.
Set against the backdrop of World War I, with Western Civilization spiralling into chaos, the first instalment in The Explorers Guild series, A Passage to Shambhala, concerns the Guild's quest to find Shambhala, the golden city of Buddhist myth.”
