John Debney has announced on his official Facebook fan page that he will be scoring the upcoming period drama mini-series Hatfields & McCoys. The three-parter directed by Kevin Reynolds (Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, Waterworld) stars Kevin Costner and Bill Paxton as two lose friends and comrades during the Civil War who return to their neighboring homes – Hatfield in West Virginia, McCoy just across the Tug River border in Kentucky – to increasing tensions, misunderstandings and resentments that soon exploded into all-out warfare between the two families. Tom Berenger, Powers Boothe and Mare Winningham are co-starring. Leslie Greif (Walker, Texas Ranger) is producing and Ted Mann (Deadwood) & Ron Parker (Broken Trail) have written the script for the Thinkfactory Media production. The series is set to premiere this Memorial Day, May 28 on the History Channel. For updates on the project, visit the cable channel’s official website.

As previously reported, Debney also has the thriller Alex Cross starring Tyler Perry, Matthew Fox and Jean Reno coming up. The film has recently been scheduled for a release on October 26, 2012. The composer has also recently recorded his score for the slapstick comedy The Three Stooges directed by Bobby and Peter Farrelly and starring Chris Diamantopolous, Sean Hayes, Will Sasso, Sofia Vergara, Jane Lynch, Larry David, Jennifer Hudson and Craig Bierko. The movie is set for a release on April 13, 2012. Check out a video from the recording sessions of the orchestral score below.
