It's been quite some time since we've had any updates on director David Hackl's killer bear flick RED MACHINE (see our last update, which includes a pic of Thomas Jane facing off against the titular baddie, HERE) but star Billy Bob Thornton recently revealed some details on the upcoming man vs. nature thriller via his official website. Peep what he had to say below:

James Marsden (X-Men, Enchanted) and Thomas Jane (“Hung”, yes, and so good in The Mist) are a pair of estranged brothers who enter the wilderness. Marsden, fresh out of jail, is the ne’er-do-well who has come home to settle some unfinished business. Jane is the town sheriff who helps his fiancée track the local fauna. Their outing in the great white north takes off but goes horribly south when they are attacked, then relentlessly pursued by a monstrous and seriously territorial grizzly bear. This is clearly not Yogi Bear or Gentle Ben territory because this particular specimen of Ursus arctos horribilis goes by the nickname "Red Machine."

Billy Bob plays Douglass, an Alaskan bear tracker whom James Marsden describes as much like Robert Shaw’s Quint character in Jaws. Douglass ain’t quite right in the head, but he knows that bears do more than you-know-what in the woods. The cast includes Adam Beach (Cowboys and Aliens), Scott Glenn (“You spook easily, Starling?”), Kelly Curran (“How I Met Your Mother”), and Michaela McManus (“The Vampire Diaries”). Piper Perabo (The Prestige) plays Thomas Jane’s fiancée, a wilderness-savvy photographer whose ability to survive the escalating danger may be hampered by the fact that she is deaf.

Thornton goes on to describe his character as someone who gets to "Ride a horse, hunt a bear, mysterious (sic) appear and disappear in the woods."

The Vancouver-lensed film is currently in post-production. Expect updates here on Arrow In The Head as we hear them!
