If there’s a person on this planet who doesn’t like Kurt Russell, I don’t want to know them. But it’s been far too long since we’ve seen the actor sink his teeth into a truly memorable role, which makes this little nugget all the more wonderful. Read on, as I’m fairly certain you’ll agree.
Variety is reporting that Russell will star in Bone Tomahawk, a horror-western genre mashup which finds the eternal man’s man strapping on some guns to play a sheriff who must rescue a group of captives (including “Dexter” star Jennifer Carpenter) from a band of crazed cannibal troglodytes. And now you’re all on board, right?
Russell and Carpenter will be joined by Richard Jenkins (as a world-weary elder) and Peter Sarsgaard (a cowboy) on his mercy mission.
This flick is slated to shoot this spring and is to be directed by screenwriter S. Craig Zahler (The Brigands of Rattleborge). This marks Zahler’s directorial debut and could very well be one of the most badass offerings 2013 has to offer.
