Kurt Russell and Timothy Olyphant sign up to throw a BONE TOMAHAWK!!!
Hey Yo! Draven here.
Here is some cool news to start off your week, The Wrap is reporting that Magnolia has acquired the rights to the Western, BONE TOMAHAWK. Beyond just an awesome title, it also has a really great cast that includes Kurt Russell, Timothy Olyphant, Peter Sarsgaard, and Jennifer Carpenter. S. Craig Zahler will be making his feature film debut as director of this project.
Here is the official plot summary that The Wrap was provided, “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.”
That sounds pretty awesome to me and I can’t wait to see Kurt Russell back on a big screen. (DEATH PROOF in 2007 was the last wide theatrical release for him!!) I am also a big fan of Timothy Olyphant, and specifically his work on JUSTIFIED (which is probably my favorite current TV show).
I don’t know if one movie can contain the coolness of both Kurt Russell and Timothy Olyphant, and then you add on the fact that this is a Western and this should be a movie we are all really excited for.
Production is scheduled to start in August for a 2014 release.
