Billy Bob Thornton TV series Fargo to film in Calgary

Fargo, an FX series original adaptation inspired by the 1996 Oscar-winning pic that features a new story and characters, will be filming outside of Calgary come November 5.

The show will star Billy Bob Thornton along side Kate Walsh, Martin Freeman, Oliver Platt, Colin Hanks, Bob Odenkirk and Glenn Howerton.

Thornton will play Lorne Malvo. Malvo will draw parallels to Gaear Grimsrud, the character played by Peter Stormare in the film.

Joel and Ethan Cohen will executive produce the series.

The 10 episode limited series will wrap filming in April.
