Kathy Bates, John Carroll Lynch, Kim Dickens, Thomas Mann, and William Sadler have rounded out the cast of Netflix and John Lee Hancock’s crime drama film “Highwaymen” starring Kevin Costner and Woody Harrelson.
Hancock is directing from a script by John Fusco. Casey Silver is producing through his Casey Silver Productions. Costner, Harrelson, Michael Malone, and Rod Lake are exec producers.
The story is based on the true events of Texas Ranger Frank Hamer and ex-partner Maney Gault, who are drawn out of retirement in a last-ditch effort to hunt down Bonnie and Clyde. Production is currently underway in Louisiana.
The pic is slated for release sometime in 2018.
