PRODUCTION: The Hatfields and McCoys Shoots in Romania

By Iulia Blaga

    BUCHAREST: Kevin Reynolds(The Count of Monte Cristo, Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves) is directing the miniseries The Hatfields and McCoys: An American Vendetta whose shooting started in Romania on 12 September 2011 and is expecting to wrap in December.

    The miniseries is produced by Leslie Greif and Thinkfactory Media (www.thinkfactorymedia.com) for the History Channel (www.history.com), with the Romania's Castel Film (www.castelfilm.ro) providing services. Ronald Parker and Ted Mann wrote the script.

    The Hatfields and McCoys stars Kevin Costner, Bill Paxton, Tom Berenger, Powers Boothe and Mare Winningham. Costner and Paxton are Anse Hatfield and Randall McCoy, the members of two opposite clans whose hostilities nearly launched a war between the states of West Virginia and Kentucky, a few years after the Civil War.

    Shooting takes place entirely in Romania. The TV release is scheduled for 2012, the 150th anniversary of the infamous family feud.
