The cast for Caliber Media’s production of writer/director S. Craig Zahler’s brutally violent Western Bone Tomahawk has expanded once again, and now on board are Lili Simmons (“True Detective,” “Banshee”) as the female lead with David Arquette (the Scream franchise), Sid Haig (The Devil’s Rejects), Kathryn Morris (“Cold Case”), and Evan Jonigkeit (“Girls”) set to co-star.
Simmons (pictured) will play “Samantha O’Dwyer,” the de facto doctor of Bright Hope and dedicated wife of Patrick Wilson’s “Arthur O’Dwyer.”
Arquette and Haig play a couple of filthy brigands whose actions set off a string of violent repercussions, Morris will play the wife of Kurt Russell’s “Sheriff Hunt,” and Jonigkeit will play a young deputy sheriff.
Sean Young (Blade Runner), Geno Segers (“Banshee”), Fred Melamed (A Serious Man), James Tolkan (Top Gun), Raw Leiba (The Heat), Jamie Hector (“The Wire”), Jamison Newlander (The Lost Boys), Zahn McClarnon (“Longmire”), David Midthunder, Jay Tavare, Gray Wolf Herrara, Robert Mukes (House of 1000 Corpses), and Brandon Molale round out the cast.
These performers join the previously announced castings of Russell, Wilson, Matthew Fox, and Richard Jenkins.
Caliber Media partners Dallas Sonnier and Jack Heller will produce and arranged the majority of the financing through a deal with The Fyzz Facility’s Wayne Marc Godfrey, Robert Jones, and David Gilbery, who will serve as executive producers.
