The 2016 Oscar Best Picture-nominated western crime film directed by David Mackenzie and written by Yellowstone's Taylor Sheridan is poised to become a TV series. "In the series version, when a ruthless oil tycoon attempts to plunder a West Texas ranching community, two local brothers dodge a zealous Texas Ranger and fight to keep what’s theirs, one bank robbery at a time, come hell or high water," reports Variety's Joe Otterson, adding that the project has received a script and additional material to series order. Starring Jeff Bridges, Chris Pine and Ben Foster, Hell or High Water earned four Oscar nominations, including for Best Picture, best original screenplay for Sheridan and best actor for Bridges. Former Dopesick and Stranger Things co-executive producer Jessica Mecklenburg will write the series.
