Elwood Reid will executive produce Barkskins alongside Scott Rudin, Garrett Basch, Eli Bush, and David Slade, who will also serve as director. The series will go into production this year.

Per the report, the series will follow a group of outcasts “who must navigate the brutal hardships, competing interests, and tangled loyalties at the crossroads of civilization—1600s New France—where the war to escape their past and re-make themselves is cast against the vast and unforgiving wilds of North America.”

Thewlis will star as Monsieur Claude Trepagny in the series, “a wealthy landowner with grand visions for New France.”
