The famous British actor Rege Jean-Page, who may return to the series “The Bridgertons”, will play along with Glen Pavelle (“Hidden Figures”, “To each his own” ) in the TV series based on “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid”.
The new project will be developed by brothers Anthony and Joe Russo, who directed the films Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Avengers: Endgame and The Gray Man. The series will be released by Amazon.
Plot details are still being kept under wraps. Also, the series does not yet have an official title. It is assumed that the action will unfold in an alternative version of America. This was reported by Deadline.
Page will play Butch Cassidy in the project, and Pavel, respectively, will play the Sundance Kid. The series will be written by Kaz and Ryan Firpo. They will co-produce the show alongside the Russo brothers, Page and Pavel.
Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid is a 1969 classic western about two outlaw friends directed by George Roy Hill. Originally starring Paul Newman and Robert Redford.
Recall that the brothers Joe and Anthony Russo have previously named the best of the candidates for the role of the new James Bond. In their opinion, the dark-skinned British actor Rege Jean-Page (Bridgerton, the Gray Man) should become the face of 007.
