According to Variety, the project will be directed by Thomas Bezucha, best known for films such as "Big Eden" and "The Family Stone". He has also adapted the movie's screenplay from Watson's novel.
The story follows retired sheriff George Blackledge (Costner) and his wife Margaret (Lane) as they leave their Montana ranch to rescue their young grandson from a dangerous family living off the grid in the Dakotas, headed by matriarch Blanche Weboy (Manville).
Kimi Armstrong Stein, Jeffrey Lampert, Costner and Rod Lake will serve as executive producers.
