Fight Club stars Edward Norton and Brad Pitt are reteaming to produce a new TV mini-series about American explorers Meriwether Lewis and William Clark.
Casey Affleck, who appeared alongside Pitt in The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, and Matthias Schoenaerts will portray the two adventurers in the six-hour series, adapted from the book Undaunted Courage, written by Stephen E. Ambrose.
Lewis and Clark led the Corps of Discovery Expedition in the early 1800s and became the first men to cross what is now the western portion of the United States, from the Mississippi River to the Pacific coast.
Production on the series is scheduled to begin this summer (15).
Tom Hanks is on board as an executive producer.
