Talk about the wild, wild west.

In the new trailer for History’s Texas Rising cast members Brendan Fraser, Ray Liotta and Bill Paxton prove the eight-hour mini series will be packed with plenty of action.

Set to premiere May 25, the show, which comes from the same producers of the network’s 2012 hit Hatfields and McCoys, details the Texas revolution against Mexico and the rise of the legendary Texas Rangers.

Paxton stars as legend Sam Houston, the “father” of Texas, while Liotta plays an Alamo survivor and Fraser a Ranger.

“We’re so excited to bring this epic story to life,” said History general manager Dirk Hoogstra. “With an all-star cast and the team that brought us the record-breaking Hatfields and McCoys, we truly feel we have something that will resonate in a big way with our audience.”
