Paxton joins ‘Vendetta’

Thesp to play opposite Costner in "Hatfields and McCoys" miniseries

Bill Paxton has been cast in History’s “The Hatfields and McCoys: An American Vendetta” alongside Kevin Costner.

Paxton will play Randall McCoy opposite Costner’s “Devil” Anse Hatfield; the scripted miniseries will be helmed by “Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves” director Kevin Reynolds and produced by Thinkfactory Media with Costner. “Deadwood” scribe Ted Mann writes.

“Hatfields and McCoys” will follow the bloody feud between the two warring families — the McCoys in Kentucky, the Hatfields in West Virginia – who fought together in the Civil War and went from comrades-at-arms to bitter enemies.

Leslie Greif serves as exec producer with Herb Nanas and Darrell Fetty producing for Thinkfactory, and History topper Nancy Dubuc and Dirk Hoogstra producing for the net.
