Screenwriter S. Craig Zahler, who penned the black-list script THE BRIGANDS OF BATTLEBORGE with director Park Chan-Wook attached to helm, is lining up his own directorial effort with BONE TOMAHAWK, described as a horror-western.  Zahler has a solid cast lined up for the pic, including Kurt Russell, Peter Sarsgaard, Richard Jenkins, and Jennifer Carpenter. 

The brutally violent, character-driven story involves a Sheriff (Russell) who enlists a cowboy (Sarsgaard) and an old man (Jenkins) to rescue a group of captives (Carpenter included) from a batch of cave-dwelling cannibals. 

To me, this has shades of THE 13TH WARRIOR, THE DESCENT, mixed with cowboy hats and six shooters. You could always say it reminds you of COWBOYS AND ALIENS, but I don't get that vibe as that was hardly character driven or brutally violent.  Ultimately, this sounds like a very promising project and Zahler's scripts being as hot as they are it'll be interesting to see how well they turn out on the big screen. 

BONE TOMAHAWK is prepping to shoot in Spring 2013 with a release date to be announced.

Nice to see Kurt Russel DO something. I just wish he could come back as Snake Plissken one last time.

LOL.

Old man Jenkins. Was that intentional because I can't stop laughing right now. This sounds like an interesting cast with an interesting story. Too bad I have to wait till next year and not watch it on Halloween today. :(

Tidbit...

A-Fucking-Men!

This sounds fucking bad-ass and I demand a scene of Kurt (with his epic moustache of course) shooting cannibals one after the other yelling "No!" every time.
