The ambitious production will be filmed in Durango, Mexico and has plans for the participation of artists like Ed Harris, Kevin Costner, Harrison Ford and Andy García. Filming begins in March which is only a few weeks before the start of principle photography of Star Wars: Episode7...
The companies behind the project are A&E Entertainment, History Channel and ITV , the largest TV company in Europe.
The production will last for 19 weeks which means, that a possible involvement of Harrison Ford with the project could directly interfere with the Episode 7 filming schedule.
Still there is no place for worries. There are no details on the roles, and all these actors could very well be guest stars in the Show. I really Doubt that Ford (71) would sign for a TV series with such staggering filming schedule. (Episode 7 is expected to be shot in less than 19 weeks). Most likely if he agrees to do it, the part will not be big.
In a similar way few weeks ago Benedict Cumberbatch who was rumored for a role in Episode 7 was attached to star in the thriller “Blood Mountain" from director Sergei Bodrov.
Principal photography for that project is slated to begin in April in Morocco which also questions Cumberbatch's involvement with the new Star Wars movie.
