FINALLY! We have our first look from the horror western, BONE TOMAHAWK! This film has been on my “Most Anticipated” list for 2 years and today we get to see a still featuring Kurt freakin’ Russell.
Written and directed by first-time filmmaker S. Craig Zahler, the movie stars Russell as a sheriff who—together with characters played by Patrick Wilson, Matthew Fox, and Richard Jenkins—sets out to rescue a group of captives from a band of cannibalistic troglodytes. The cast of Bone Tomahawk also boasts True Detective actress Lili Simmons, David Arquette, Fred Melamed, and Sean Young, among others.
Wilson says he was drawn to the project by both the script and the opportunity to ride out with Russell. “I mean, if you’re a child of the 80s, your Westerns are Silverado and Tombstone,” says the Insidious star. “To do a movie with Kurt is one thing—to do a Western with Kurt is like, ‘Alright! I’m going to be next to Wyatt Earp up there on a horse!’”
The tentative release date is set for fall or winter of 2015.
