Original Texas Chain Saw Writer-Producer's Boneboys Bringing Cannibalism to the Big City
The Wild Man of the Navidad co-director Duane Graves dropped me a line with word of his latest production written and produced by original Texas Chain Saw Massacre writer/producer Kim Henkel, Boneboys, which unleashes predatory cannibals in a cityscape.
Boneboys was originally conceived back in 2008 as a potential urban Texas Chain Saw Massacre sequel before getting reworked into its own potential franchise. Leatherface fans should be thrilled to know Boneboys boasts cameos by several TCM series alumni: Marilyn Burns, Bill Johnson, Ed Neal, Ed Guinn, Bill Wise, Perry Lorenz and John Dugan.
The Wild Man of The Navidad (review here) directors, Duane Graves and Justin Meeks, re-team with the original The Texas Chain Saw Massacre writer/producer, Kim Henkel, for a gut-wrenching, non-stop roller coaster ride through the hellish underbelly of inner-city America. A birthday celebration at an upscale restaurant sets in motion events that bring Sissy, her brother, Mikey, and friends, Kenny and Barbie, face to face with the macabre world of the Boneboys. Inspired by Jonathan Swift’s cannibalistic tale A Modest Proposal, the Boneboys are international predators who deal in human flesh — dead or alive. Their hunting grounds are the cities of the world.
Derek Lee Nixon (Outrage: Born in Terror and relative newcomers Ali Faulkner and Philip Wolf star in this terrifying tale of inner city cannibalism filmed in and around Austin and San Antonio, Texas, last fall. Currently in the final stages of post production, expect Boneboys to play film festivals beginning early next year.
Below you’ll find a slew of production stills Graves was kind enough to pass along to us. Hopefully we’ll bring you a trailer in the very near future.
