History’s The Hatfields and McCoys family is expanding.
Tom Berenger, Powers Boothe and Mare Winningham have joined the miniseries starring Kevin Costner and Bill Paxton as the famed leaders of the feuding families.
The project follows the former friends and Civil War comrades who return home after the war to properties on opposite sides of the Tug River border in Kentucky and West Virginia to increasing tensions that bring the neighboring states to the bring of another war.
Paxton (Big Love) will play Randall McCoy with Costner (Dances With Wolves) set as “Devil” Anse Hatfield.
Berenger (Major League) will play Jim Vanse, Anse’s Uncle Jim, the warlord of the Hatfield family.
Boothe (Deadwood) will play Wall Hatafield, Anse’s level-headed older brother who was the local justice of the peace and judge.
Winningham (Mildred Pierce) will play Sally McCoy, Randall’s beleaguered wife who loses four sons, a daughter and her sanity in the feud.
In addition, Red Dawn helmer Kevin Reynolds has signed on to direct the miniseries, produced by Leslie Greif’s Thinkfactory Media.
Berenger is repped by Brillstein Entertainment and ICM; Boothe with Brillstein Entertainment and Paradigm; and Winningham is with IFA.
History will air the project next year, on the 150th anniversary of the country’s most infamous feud.
