by on

Kathy Bates and Kim Dickens have joined the cast of period drama Highwaymen.

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. 

John Lee Hancock is set to direct the film from Netflix which is currently filming in Louisiana. Highwaymen stars Kevin Costner and Woody Harrelson and is set for release later this year.

Bates can currently be seen in the Netflix comedy series Disjointed, while Dickens will continue to star in AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead when it returns for its third season.
