Paramount+ announced Helen Mirren and Harrison Ford have been tapped to star in the ‘Yellowstone’ origin story ‘1932,’ from creator Taylor Sheridan. The series will stream exclusively on Paramount+ and debut at a date to be determined in December.
1932 “introduces a new generation of the Dutton family and will explore the early 20th century when pandemics, historic drought, the end of Prohibition and the Great Depression all plague the mountain west, and the Duttons who call it home.” Character details for the roles that Mirren and Ford will play are being kept under wraps.
Mirren’s credits include Prime Suspect and HBO’s Catherine the Great miniseries. She earned a best actress Oscar for her role in 2007’s The Queen, and has earned Primetime Emmys for her work in Prime Suspect, The Passion of Ayn Rand and Elizabeth I.
Ford just signed on to star in the Apple comedy series Shrinking, his first ongoing TV series role in a comedy. 1932 will become Ford’s first dramatic series regular part. He also recently wrapped filming on Indiana Jones 5.
