Meghan Markle ditched her acting career while pursuing a royal romance with Prince Harry, but the Duchess of Sussex is allegedly ready to get back on the saddle — this time on Kevin Costner’s Horizon: An American Saga.
The couple rubbed shoulders with the Yellowstone sensation weeks ago, having paid a visit to his lavish California estate for a One805 charity fundraiser to honor first responders.
Insiders claimed that in addition to attending events with causes near and dear to their hearts, Meghan has simultaneously been working behind the scenes to angle for a leading role in the second half of the four-movie saga “so she can finally embrace her age-old dream of being a queen of the silver screen.”
“Meghan is using the unbelievable new success of her long-canceled series Suits, which is undergoing a revival on streaming, to convince Kevin she’s the key to his future success — and he’s listening,” teased a source.
The mom of two is “pulling out all the stops” because she believes “it will cement her Hollywood comeback in spectacular fashion,” according to the National Enquirer.
Insiders suggest it will be just the boost she would need after a string of disappointing ventures, including her failed podcast series with Harry.
“It’s the kind of part that could cement her status as a serious actress,” snitched an insider. “Meghan desperately wants a role in Horizon — because it’s scheduled to shoot another two parts after this production wraps.”
Costner co-wrote, produced, and also directs and stars in the project. “Horizon is incredibly meaningful to me. It’s really been the hardest thing I’ve ever done, but it’s exactly what I want to do,” the actor told PEOPLE, adding, “In my career I’ve tried to choose not based on what was popular. I made the films I wanted to make.”
A source pointed out that he’s not the only one who has big wishes for the project. “It’s also being billed as one of the most anticipated film events in years and will be heavily promoted and open even more doors for Meghan.”
The report noted it’s a passion project for Costner and he’s apparently mulling over whether or not to let Meghan join the cast.
“He wants this to be his biggest success ever and has all his chips in on it,” said the tipster. “He knows how much attention she’ll draw and is banking on her bringing more eyeballs to the project, just as she did with Suits.”
