First Look: Bone Tomahawk

By Dr. Know on November 4th, 2014

Well, it’s not a whole lot but after the long wait we’ve had to endure for anything on Bone Tomahawk it’s better than nothing. If you click the thumbnails below you’ll see Kurt Russell back in a Tombstone-ish mode (and a poster with co-stars no longer attached to the project) for this Western/horror flick, which is been on the drawing board for several years now.

The official synopsis:

Bone Tomahawk follows an outlaw who unknowingly leads a band of cannibalistic Troglodytes into the peaceful western town of Bright Hope. When the monsters kidnap several settlers, including a rancher’s wife, a small rescue party consisting of the injured rancher, the sheriff, his aging deputy and a strong-willed gunslinger, journey into hell to try and rescue them. They soon find themselves in dark unknown territories where savage inbreeds armed with the ultimate weapon leave no hope of survival.

The cast is loaded with genre faves including Sid Haig (The Devil’s Rejects), David Arquette (Scream), Sean Young (Blade Runner), James Tolkan (Top Gun), Jamison Newlander (The Lost Boys), Robert Mukes (House of 1000 Corpses),, and Michael Pare (Streets of Fire). Matthew Fox, the criminally underrated Richard Jenkins, Patrick Wilson, Kathryn Morris, and Brandon Molale round out the cast.

S. Craig Zahler directs from his own screenplay.

Bone Tomahawk is tentatively scheduled for some time in 2015.
