DEADWOOD, S.D. (AP) - Hollywood actor Kevin Costner is asking $14 million for 1,000 acres of land he owns in western South Dakota's Black Hills.

The property includes the site of the ill-fated Dunbar resort, a $100 million project that would have included a golf course and a steam-powered passenger train. It never materialized.

The listing does not include Costner's Midnight Star, the tallest building on Deadwood's Main Street, or the $6 million Tatanka visitor attraction he owns on the gambling town's north edge.

Costner filmed much of his Academy Award-wining movie "Dances with Wolves" in South Dakota. Real estate agent Mike Percevich says Costner has a strong sense of loyalty to the area, and his decision to sell was a difficult one.
