Late last year we told you about a cool sounding horror-western heading our way called BONE TOMAHAWK that is set to star the always awesome Kurt Russell, and today we have the news out of Cannes that Magnolia Pictures has acquired the S. Craig Zahler helmed flick with 2929 Entertainment onboard to fully finance the movie which will co-star Peter Sarsgaard, Jennifer Carpenter and Timothy Olyphant.
The Wrap dropped the news on the deal, sharing that Constantin has acquired BONE TOMAHAWK for German-speaking European territories and that Celluloid Dreams has also already pre-sold France (Wildside), Australia (Transmission), Russia (Luxor) and Thailand (IPA Asia). Dallas Sonnier and Jack Heller are producing through their Caliber Media Co. banner.
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.
Production is scheduled to start in August in Utah.
