Qui-Gon and Tallahassee may go hunting Bonnie & Clyde.
‘The Blind Side’ helmer John Lee Hancock has signed on to take the director’s chair for ‘Highwaymen,’ a Depression Era-set drama that has Liam Neeson and Woody Harrelson in line to star.
Penned by John Fusco (‘Hidalgo,’ ‘Young Guns’) and focuses on legendary lawman Frank Hamer, who was coaxed by a consortium of banks to assemble a posse and end the robbery reign of Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow in the 1930s.
According to Deadline, Hancock is aiming to have ‘Highwaymen’ in production early 2014. The film will be co-financed between Universal Pictures and Media Rights Capital, who previously teamed on ‘Ted.’
