The Highwaymen is a 2019 American historical crime film helmed by John Lee Hancock, the director of The Alamo and The Blind Side, and happened to be the screenwriter of the Costner-starring feature A Perfect World and was written by John Fusco, the screenwriter of such period films as Young Guns, Young Guns II, Thunderheart, and Hidalgo. The movie focuses on the 1934 manhunt for Bonnie and Clyde that was run by the famous Texas Ranger Frank Hamer (Kevin Costner). Woody Harrelson portrays Benjamin Maney Gault who served with Hamer in the Rangers and participated in the manhunt operation. The movie was filmed in Louisiana in the winter and spring of 2018. The production filmed the (in)famous ambush of Bonnie and Clyde at the actual location on Highway 154 in Northern Louisiana from March 21 - March 25, 2018. In order to be period correct, the production had to truck in dirt, since the highway is now a paved two lane highway. Trees were also planted to ensure that the location looked like it did on May 23, 1934. The Highwaymen premiered in the US on Netflix on March 29, 2019.
