Kurt Russell-starring horror western gets underway this summer


While yet to film, Magnolia Pictures has already acquired the Kurt Russell-starring BONE TOMAHAWK. 

The directorial debut of author and screenwriter S. Craig Zahler, BONE TOMAHAWK will co-star Timothy Olyphant (JUSTIFIED), DEXTER’s Jennifer Carpenter and Peter Sarsgaard (ORPHAN). A fine cast certainly made finer by Russell.

The film 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, journey into hell to try and rescue them. They soon find themselves in dark unknown territories where savage inbreeds armed with the ultimate weapon leave no hope of survival.”
