We’ve been a fan of actor Timothy Olyphant for years now, from Scream 2 to Go to “Deadwood” to “Justified,” and now we’re looking forward to seeing what he brings to the horror-western-cannibal tale Bone Tomahawk.
Per Deadline, Olyphant is set to star opposite Kurt Russell, Peter Sarsgaard, Richard Jenkins, and Jennifer Carpenter in the feature directorial debut of S. Craig Zahler. Dallas Sonnier and Jack Heller are producing through their Caliber Media Co. banner. Production is slated for a spring 2013 start in New Mexico.
In Bone Tomahawk four men attempt to rescue a group of captives (including Carpenter) from a band of cannibalistic troglodytes that live beyond the edge of civilization. Olyphant will play John Brooder, an eloquent sharpshooter who moved to the frontier in order to satisfy the dark impulses that lie beneath his polished exterior. Russell plays a sheriff with Jenkins as a world-weary elder and Sarsgaard as a cowboy.
Look for lots more soon!
