Kevin Costner is set to show off his song and dance talents after signing up to star in his first musical - a remake of 1949 classic ON THE TOWN.

The DANCES WITH WOLVES star, who was once a skilled ballet star, will reportedly recreate Gene Kelly's role in the project about three sailors living it up in New York on shore leave.

The actor tells SKYNEWS.COM, "This will move people to me in so many different ways."

The original movie also starred Frank Sinatra.
