Casey Affleck and Matthias Schoenaerts will play American explorers Lewis and Clark in a new HBO miniseries.
Based on the book Undaunted Courage by Stephen E Ambrose, Lewis and Clark tells the story of America’s first contact with the land and native tribes west of the Mississippi River.
Produced by Playtone, Plan B, and Class 5 for HBO and National Geographic Studios, it is written by Michelle Ashford, John Curran, and Edward Norton.
Tom Hanks, Gary Goetzman, Norton, Brad Pitt, Dede Gardner, Tim Kelly, and Adam Leipzig executive produce.
The six-hour miniseries will begin production this summer.
