Butch Cassidy and the Wild Bunch Tubi cast includes Ross Jirgl, Jeffrey Combs, and Jilon VanOver. The western drama will premiere on March 17.
Directed by Anthony C. Ferrante from the screenplay by Geoff Meed, the film tells the story of the infamous Butch Cassidy and his deadly band of outlaws and the Pinkerton detective agency.
It was an outlaw gang that existed in the late 1800s. The loosely organized outlaw gangs operated out of the Hole-in-the-Wall, near Kaycee in Wyoming, Western United States.
Talking to Digital Journal, lead actor Jirgl said, “there is a lot of vague knowledge about these real-life people.” He said people don’t know exactly how these people operated.
Jirgl and VanOver both talked about their new movie and admitted it was one of the most challenging movies to get across the finish line. And yes, they had a really good time.
