    Me too. My last name is McCoy. Should be interesting.
    You know what the three most exciting sounds in the world are? Anchor chains, plane motors and train whistles.

    It's about time this story of Americana was revisited, and it was filmed in Romania, like Cold Mountain. The last production of this type was a made-for-TV movie in 1975. Later this year a big screen version called Bad Blood: The Hatfields and McCoys will be released, filmed in Kentucky.

    Caught the preview for that one, unfortunately it has "straight to DVD" written all over it. The History Channel version looks much better.

    Now don't be bad mouthing the whole Straight to DVD genre. I'm still upset that American Pie Band Camp didn't get Best Picture.

    I've read up on the Hatfields etc. Wild time back then.

    Is this the first true acted out movie-style drama for The History Channel, not to be confused with the brief scenes of docudramas they usually do? Several years ago National Geographic (with Hallmark) did a made for made-for-TV movie on Stanley and Livingstone that was pretty decent. It apparently was their only venture into this type of production.

    Yes, as far as I know, and from the description on the History Channel website, it's being described as a full-length mini-series/drama.

    It's nice to see this made into a movie. Should be interesting.

    Saw both an extended trailer & then a shorter one at previews for The Avengers in IMAX 3D yesterday.
    This should be a good one for period movie fans as well as hat folks.
