After shutting down three weeks ago, the cast of HBO’s high-profile six-hour miniseries “Lewis and Clark” have been informed that production on the remainder of the event series will resume in the spring.
At the time of the shut down, it was revealed both director John Curran and director of photography Rob Hardy are leaving the production which had a rough time both with internal issues and weather-related factors. In a statement to Deadline, the network says:
“As we looked at the schedule for Lewis and Clark and assessed the winter weather challenges ahead, we decided to remount the production in the spring. We are currently searching for a new director and director of photography. We are also in conversations now with the actors’ representatives to coordinate their schedules for next year.”
Casey Affleck and Matthias Schoenaerts star in the period mini about Lewis and Clark’s famous travels including their first contact with the land and native tribes of the United States west of the Mississippi River.
