JOSH Brolin is to star in a new rancher drama called Outer Range for Amazon Prime.

The series, from executive producer Brad Pitt, focuses on Royal Abbott (Brolin), a Wyoming rancher fighting for his land and family, who discovers an unfathomable mystery at the edge of Wyoming’s wilderness.

It is being written by Brian Watkins, who is also among the executive producers.

Brolin is no stranger to TV, having starred on ABC’s Western drama The Young Riders, which ran for three seasons from 1989-1992. But this does mark his largest TV commitment since then.

On the big screen, the actor will next be seen in Dune and has also recently wrapped production on Flag Day, opposite Sean Penn and Miles Teller. He next will reprise his role as Cable in the Deadpool spin-off X-Force. And he is also writing, executive producing and starring in an untitled project for Hulu.
