Earlier this year we reported that the upcoming horror-western BONE TOMAHAWK had landed one hell of a cast, with Kurt Russell joining Peter Sarsgaard, Jennifer Carpenter and Timothy Olyphant for author-turned-director S. Craig Zahler's feature debut, and while the film has yet to shoot (filming is scheduled to begin next April), Screen Daily is reporting that The Works has picked up UK distribution rights to Celluloid Dreams’ BONE TOMAHAWK on the first day of the AFM and that negotiations are in an advanced stage between CAA and US distributor Image Entertainment for a new North American rights deal.
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.
I'm pretty stoked for this one as it has a solid line-up of actors and the synopsis sounds like it'll be one hell of a crazy ride through the Old West. Here's hoping that things progress smoothly for BONE TOMAHAWK as I can't wait to hear more on this flick!
