By Tatiana Siegel

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Sela Ward has signed to
join Kevin Costner in "The Guardian," an action drama that also
stars Ashton Kutcher.

The Disney project revolves around the relationship between
a rebellious Coast Guard enlistee (Kutcher) and a legendary
rescue swimmer (Costner). Ward will play Costner's wife in a
troubled marriage.

The film reteams Ward with Andy Davis, who directed her in
"The Fugitive." Shooting begins next month in Shreveport, La.

The Emmy-winning actress, whose credits include the TV
series "Once and Again" and the apocalyptic film "The Day After
Tomorrow," stars on the Fox TV series "House."
