Violent Horror/Western ‘Bone Tomahawk’ Throws Up A Terrific Cast!

5 December 2012 3:10 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

There’s an exciting project on the horizon with a feature entitled Bone Tomahawk. It’s being described as a ‘brutally violent horror-Western’, which sounds perfect cinema-going film-fodder for this Thn writer. The synopsis sees the focus on four men who attempt to save a group of captives from a band of cannibalistic oddities living on the edge of civilisation. It may sound a touch Wrong Turn/The Hills Have Eyes but the genre-splicing setting adds an extra dimension – add to the fantastic main cast currently being assembled!

Deadwood and Justified’s superb Timothy Olyphant has just been confirmed to take the lead in S. Craig Zahler directorial debut as John Brooder, surmised as ‘an eloquent sharpshooter who moved to the frontier in order to satisfy the dark impulses that lie beneath his polished exterior’. He’ll join the already onboard (Snake Plisskin himself) Kurt Russell, Boys Don’T Cry’s Peter Sarsgaard, »

Olyphant to Star in ‘Bone Tomahawk’

5 December 2012 2:56 PM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

The Old West is slowly coming back. Being at its biggest during John Wayne’s career, the popularity of such films petered out. It seems that with remakes of “3:10 to Yuma,” and “True Grit” has spurred a rebirth. And now that Quentin Tarantino is on his way to paying homage to the genre, Westerns are gaining mainstream momentum.

Justified’s” Timothy Olyphant is set to star in “Bone Tomahawk.” Instead of the aforementioned movies, the movie is not just a Western, but a Horror. Four men set to journey outside of the edge of civilization in order to free a group of captives. In order to brave the fire, the posse must face the cannibalistic cavemen that have kidnapped the innocents.

Also appearing will be Kurt Russell, Peter Sarsgaard, Jennifer Carpenter, and Richard Jenkins. “Bone Tomahawks” will also be the first directorial effort by S. Craig Zahler, who wrote the script for “Asylum Blackout. »

Bone Tomahawk Adds Timothy Olyphant!

5 December 2012 12:21 PM, PST | Filmofilia | See recent Filmofilia news »

So, things are pretty clear: the upcoming horror-western (although some still call it an action thriller) titled Bone Tomahawk will definitely have an awesome cast on board. Kurt Russell, Peter Sarsgaard, Richard Jenkins and Jennifer Carpenter are already attached to star in the whole thing, and now comes the word that Timothy Olyphant (Justified) will join them as well!

Bone Tomahawk comes from director S. Craig Zahler and at this moment we know that it will follow a sheriff, a gunslinger, a befuddled oldster and a cowboy as they attempt to rescue a group of captives from a band of cannibalistic troglodytes.

Now imagine Russell as sheriff, Jenkins as a befuddled oldster and Sarsgaard as a cowboy – and you already have a brutally violent, character-driven movie.

As for Olyphant, he comes on board to play character named John Brooder, described as an eloquent sharpshooter who moved to the frontier in »

Timothy Olyphant Sets Sights on Horror Western 'Bone Tomahawk'

5 December 2012 11:36 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

When we first wrote about director S. Craig Zahler's upcoming horror western Bone Tomahawk, we wondered who would step in and play the yet-to-be-cast gunslinger alongside already terrific cast members like Kurt Russell as a sheriff, Peter Sarsgaard as a cowboy, Richard Jenkins as a confused old man, and Jennifer Carpenter as the woman they all must rescue from a band of bloodthirsty cannibals. Now Deadline reports that Timothy Olyphant has signed on as the last member of the rescue party, playing a dapper, well-spoken sniper who moved Wild West in order to satiate some dark urges that lie within him. Read on! Olyphant is well-versed in eloquent cowboy characters, having played U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens in three seasons of the excellent FX series "Justified" so far, and doing a pitch-perfect Clint Eastwood impression as the Spirit of the West in last year's animated feature Rango.

Must-See Gritty Western Bone Tomahawk Just Got Even More Must-See-ier

5 December 2012 11:21 AM, PST | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Even without this latest cast addition, I was already primed to dig first-time director S. Craig Zahler’s “Bone Tomahawk”, but now? Hells yeah, as the kids say. (Kids still say that, right?) The trades report that Timothy Olyphant has joined the cast of Zahler’s gritty Western “Bone Tomahawk”, and has signed on to play a character named John Brooder, described as “an eloquent sharpshooter who moved to the frontier in order to satisfy the dark impulses that lie beneath his polished exterior.” I picture lots of fancy words while he’s mowing down people. Olyphant, who is no stranger to Western wear and gunfights, joins a cast that already includes Kurt Russell, Peter Sarsgaard, Richard Jenkins, and Jennifer Carpenter. The plot, based on Zahler’s original script, follows four men as they attempt to rescue a group of captives from “a band of cannibalistic troglodytes that live beyond the edge of civilization. »
