‘Killers of the Flower Moon’ star Lily Gladstone slams ‘deplorable’ Kevin Costner series ‘Yellowstone’
“As a child, and I think most people’s experiences with Bass – you hear about this badass gunslinging lawman, pursuing the most hardened outlaws in the West,” showrunner Chad Feehan told The Post.“Lawmen: Bass Reeves” stars David Oyelowo (“Selma”) in the title role,with Donald Sutherland as a judge, Dennis Quaid as deputy US Marshal Sherill Lynn and Shea Whigham as George Reeves, the man who enslaves Bass at the beginning of the show. The historical drama premieres Nov.
Although Sheridan’s name on the show might generate expectations of another “Yellowstone,” Feehan (“Ray Donovan”) said that he had no thoughts of imitating the hit series.“Didn’t cross my mind, to be honest,” he said. “I was purely guided by telling the best story I could tell, and by honoring Bass Reeves. headtopics.com
For instance, Sheridan suggested a scene in the pilot where Bass has an emotional reunion with his wife, Jennie (Lauren E. Banks), he said.The story begins in 1862, when Bass Reeves is enslaved and fighting for the Confederacy in the Civil War.
“It was an easy and obvious choice, where to start this story. So, I knew that was the beginning point.”“I’m going to steal a quote from David himself, which is ‘You have to go into the dark for the light to shine,’” said Feehan. headtopics.com
