The Highwaymen — Official Featurette


added: Mon, Mar 25th '19

Director Arthur Penn's 1967 true-crime classic "Bonnie and Clyde" took the brutal story of the infamous Depression-era bank robbers and made them into fashionable anti-heroes, sequentially launching the film careers of its young stars, Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway, who both ended up becoming '60s pop culture icons.

"The Highwaymen," a new Netflix original film, is depicting the same Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow story, but forgoing the allure of the murderous criminals, and instead focuses on the two legendary lawmen who took them down -- Texas Ranger Hall-of-Famer Frank Hamer (played by Kevin Costner) and his old partner Maney Gault (Woody Harrelson).

Texas-born director John Lee Hancock, best known for "The Blind Side" and "Saving Mr. Banks," takes on the task of portraying this historical 1930s crime drama, which also stars Academy Award winner Kathy Bates as Governor "Ma" Ferguson, the first female Governor of Texas who was the governor who presided over the Bonnie and Clyde case in 1934.

Set to premiere on Netflix this Friday, March 29th, the streaming company has just released an official featurette, offering a behind-the-scenes look at what went into the making of the film, including the costumes and production designs. Watch it above.

From director John Lee Hancock (The Blind Side), THE HIGHWAYMEN follows the untold true story of the legendary lawmen who brought down Bonnie and Clyde.

When the full force of the FBI and the latest forensic technology aren't enough to capture the nation's most notorious criminals, two former Texas Rangers (Kevin Costner and Woody Harrelson) must rely on their gut instincts and old school skills to get the job done.
