More distro news is coming out of Cannes as Magnolia Pictures had acquired U.S. rights to S. Craig Zahler’s Western Bone Tomahawk, which will be fully financed by 2929 Entertainment. Read on for details.
Timothy Olyphant, Kurt Russell, Peter Sarsgaard, Richard Jenkins, and Jennifer Carpenter will star 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 to begin this August in Utah.
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 journeys into hell to try to rescue them. They soon find themselves in dark unknown territories where savage inbreeds armed with the ultimate weapon leave no hope of survival.
Look for lots more soon!
