"Snow White and the Huntsman" star Charlize Theron will produce modern-day retelling of the Hatfields and McCoys feud, recently the source of a huge hit for History
Charlize Theron is ready to go a-feuding with NBC.
The "Snow White and the Huntsman" actress has sold a modern-day version of the Hatfields and McCoys saga to the network, an individual with knowledge of the situation told TheWrap.
Theron will serve as producer on the project, which is being produced by ABC Studios via her Denver and Delilah production shingle. "Prison Break" executive producer Dawn Olmstead and "Requiem for a Dream" producer Beau Flynn are also on board to produce, with "Eagle Eye" scribe John Glenn writing.
The pickup follows on History Channel's successful "Hatfields & McCoys" miniseries, which set viewership records for ad-supported cable, raking in 14.3 million total viewers with its May 30 finale. That version of the saga starred Kevin Costner and Bill Paxton as the patriarchs behind America's most famous family feud.
