On June 21, 2017, it was reported that Netflix was in negotiations to extricate the production from Universal Pictures. At the time of the report, Netflix was in early discussions with Woody Harrelson and Kevin Costner for the two lead roles and with John Lee Hancock as director. The script was written by John Fusco and rewritten by Hancock. Casey Silver, who had been developing the project while it was at Universal, was set to produce. On February 12, 2018, it was announced by Netflix that the film had entered production. Hancock was officially confirmed as director, and Harrelson, Costner, and Silver were confirmed as producers. They are set to produce alongside Michael Malone and Rod Lake. The production reportedly has a budget of around $49 million.

The film entered into principal photography on February 12, 2018 in New Orleans, Louisiana.
