Kurt Russell Saddles Up With ‘Dexter’ Star for Horror Western ‘Bone Tomahawk’
Some more horror movie-related news for you on this Halloween day: Seems as though Kurt Russell is strapping on the gun holster once again for a supernatural Western called ‘Bone Tomahawk.’ No stranger to Westerns (‘Tombstone’) or horror (‘The Thing’), Russell is an ideal casting choice for a mash-up of the two genres.
According to Variety, ‘Bone Tomahawk,’ written and set to be directed by S. Craig Zahler, is described as a “brutally violent, character-driven” film that follows a sheriff (Russell), a gunslinger, a befuddled oldster (Richard Jenkins) and a cowboy (Peter Sarsgaard) as they attempt to rescue a group of captives (including ‘Dexter‘ star Jennifer Carpenter) from a band of cannibalistic troglodytes.
You heard it here first: next year’s hot Halloween costume will be “cannibalistic troglodyte.”
‘Bone Tomahawk’ is being produced by Caliber Media and will commence production in the spring in New Mexico.
Zahler made a name for himself back in 2006 when his screenplay ‘The Brigands of Rattleborge‘ topped the prestigious Black List. In late-August, ‘Oldboy‘ director Park Chan-Wook signed on to helm the film, also described as a violent Western.
