It is based on the 1969 Western film titled Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, which starred Paul Newman and Robert Redford.

Amazon Studios gave the Butch and Sundance TV remake a straight-to-series order after winning the rights from a bidding war against Disney+ and Peacock. Page is set to portray Butch Cassidy, with Powell playing the Sundance Kid. Both actors will also be serving as executive producers and are expected to be involved in the show’s creative decisions.

The series will be written by Cousins Kaz and Ryan Firpo. Further details about its plot are still being kept under wraps, but it is reportedly set to take place in an alternate reality similar to the one in the Prime Video series Man in the High Castle.

Executive producers are the Russo Brothers, Mike Larocca, Angela Russo-Otstot, and Scott Nemes for AGBO. This marks the filmmaking duo’s latest project with Amazon, as they’re also currently working on the high-profile global spy series Citadel for Prime Video.
