First Look at Kevin Costner and Woody Harrelson in Netflix's THE HIGHWAYMEN
Netflix has a new Bonnie & Clyde-adjacent movie dropping on March 29, 2012, and they’ve just released a first look. Woody Harrelson and Kevin Costner star in The Highwaymen as two detectives who come out of retirement to catch the infamous outlaws. John Lee Hancock is directing.
The still released shows the two actors facing each other, maybe arguing or maybe about to kiss. It’s not clear. The only thing we can actually tell from the image is that they should both button their suit coats so they look less sloppy.
The Highwaymen also stars Kathy Bates, Kim Dickens, W. Earl Brown, John Carroll Lynch, and Thomas Mann. Interestingly, a perusal of the IMDb cast page shows that no one is playing the outlaws themselves, although several actresses are credited as “Bonnie Look Alike.” It’s a different sort of cat and mouse game if the mice never appear on screen. Of course, this far out from release, IMDb isn’t always accurate, so this has been a mostly futile exercise.
The Highwaymen will be on Netflix March 29, 2019. It definitely looks intriguing.
