Park Chan-wook To Direct an Ultra Violent Western Thriller For Amazon Called The Brigands Of Rattlecreek

Oldboy director Park Chan-wook is set to direct an ultra violent western thriller for Amazon called The Brigands of Rattlecreek. The script for the film comes from S. Craig Zahler who wrote the awesomely insane film Bone Tomahawk. If you liked that movie, then you’re definitely going to want to see this one!

The story for the film follows a sheriff and a doctor “who seek revenge against a group of bandits who use the cover of a torrential thunderstorm to rob and terrorize the occupants of a small town. Zahler’s script topped the 2006 Black List but has languished in development, likely due to its violent content.”

Amazon and producer Bradley Fischer (Shutter Island) are also trying to get Matthew McConaughey to star in the film as the doctor, and they are also looking to cast another A-list star as the sheriff. This seems like the kind of

Park Chan-wook to direct ultraviolent western thriller from Bone Tomahawk’s S. Craig Zahler

According to Collider, Oldboy director Park Chan-wook is set to helm The Brigands of Rattlecreek, an “ultraviolent western thriller” from S. Craig Zahler, the writer-director of horror-western Bone Tomahawk and Brawl on Cell Block 99.

The site reports that the film, which is being produced by Amazon Studios, “follows a sheriff and a doctor who seek revenge against a group of bandits who use the cover of a torrential thunderstorm to rob and terrorize the occupants of a small town.” Matthew McConaughey is reportedly the top choice to portray the doctor, although no casting offers have went out as yet.

Park has been circling the project for a number of years, with Zahler’s script having topped the Black List back in 2006 under its original title The Brigands of Rattleborge.

Park’s last film, the psychological thriller The Handmaiden, was released back in 2016. Zahler meanwhile has the crime thriller Dragged Across Concrete incoming,

‘The Brigands of Rattlecreek’: Park Chan-wook to Direct Ultra-Violent Western
Here’s a collaboration you never knew you needed until now: Park Chan-wook and S. Craig Zahler are teaming for the ultra-violent western “The Brigands of Rattlecreek.” Park will direct from a script by Zahler, and the long-gestating project finally has a home in Amazon Studios. Zahler’s script received pride of place on the 2006 Black List, when it was still called “The Brigands of Rattleborge.”

According to Collider, which first reported that Amazon picked up the project, “Rattlecreek” follows “a sheriff and a doctor who seek revenge against a group of bandits who use the cover of a torrential thunderstorm to rob and terrorize the occupants of a small town.” Anyone who saw “Bone Tomahawk” knows that Zahler is no stranger to disturbing violence in a gunslinging setting, but whether his latest has as out-there a climax remains to be seen. He most recently wrote and directed “Dragged Across Concrete,

Park Chan-wook’s ‘The Brigands of Rattlecreek,’ Scripted by S. Craig Zahler, Gets Revived at Amazon

It was seven years ago we got our last update on Park Chan-wook’s ultra-violent western The Brigands of Rattleborge. With the director going on to make The Handmaiden and Little Drummer Girl, he’s now returning to the promising project as it’s been revived by Amazon Studios, Collider reports.

Scripted by S. Craig Zahler–no stranger to bloody epics with Bone Tomahawk and Brawl in Cell Block 99–the film is now titled The Brigands of Rattlecreek and the studio is pursuing Matthew McConaughey to take the lead role, although talks are currently in the early stage.

The screenplay, which made the Black List way back in 2006, is described as “a riveting, emotionally-charged story of vengeance and retribution,” and it deals with many themes Park knows well as we follow “a group of ruthless thieves who use the cover of a torrential rainstorm to plunder a frontier town named Rattlecreek.

Years before writer S.

Seven years ago, I reported that South Korean helmer Park Chan-wook (Oldboy) was in talks to direct the ultraviolent western thriller The Brigands of Rattleborge from Bone Tomahawk writer S.

‘The Cannibal Club’ Review

Stars: Tavinho Teixeira, Ana Luiza Rios, Pedro Domingues, Zé Maria, Rodrigo Capistrano, Alcântra Costa, Lc Galetto | Written and Directed by Guto Parente

Cannibal movies are normally always controversial movies. Cannibal Holocaust is probably the film genre fans instantly think of when you’re asked to name a film about people eating other people but there’s a long list of banned and gory movies. Hannibal has had a TV show and many movies, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise has had a few highlights, while more recently the coming of age Raw and horror western Bone Tomahawk have shocked audiences. But Brazil’s The Cannibal Club is a very different thing.

It is a kind of dark comedy about sex and cannibalism, which seems a pretty odd thing. If you were unsure what route The Cannibal Club was going to take, the first ten minutes will quickly tell you. As we

“Captain Marvel” And “Us”: Films To See In March

Now that we’ve full on put the 91st Academy Awards in the rearview mirror, let us now focus on 2019 releases with all of our attention. Yes, we now officially move on to March releases, a month where we essentially get a preview of the summer movie season. Awards type fare will more or less fade away for a few months, so blockbusters are on the horizon here (with one or two potential exceptions). Sometimes that means a big downturn in quality, but I can vouch for some of these March releases are really solid. As hinted above, you never know, one or two might just be an Oscar contender next year. Anything is possible, after all, and obviously look for more coverage on these films during the weeks to come. Here now are the ten best bets for March viewing: 10. The Kid – This western is directed by and co-stars Vincent D’Onofrio,

15 Films to See in March

With the elongated awards season behind us, it’s time to turn our attention to the 2019 cinematic offerings and this month is a doozy. Featuring some of the greatest films we saw on the festival circuit in the last year as well as a few hugely promising new releases, it’s a varied, impressive slate. There’s also one film that I full-heartedly despised and couldn’t bear to mention, but other writers here feel on the other end of the spectrum, so it should at least provoke some heated discussion this month.

Matinees to See: Greta (3/1), The Hole in the Ground (3/1), Woman at War (3/1), The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind (3/1), Leaving Neverland (3/3 & 3/4), Triple Frontier (3/6), Gloria Bell (3/8) Two Plains & a Fancy (3/8), The Mustang (3/15), The Eyes of Orson Welles (3/15), The Aftermath (3/15), The Hummingbird Project (3/15), Ramen Shop (3/22), Hotel Mumbai (3/22), The Highwaymen (3/29)

Glasgow Film Festival 2019 Review – Dragged Across Concrete

Dragged Across Concrete, 2019.

Directed by S. Craig Zahler.

Starring Mel Gibson, Vince Vaughn, Tory Kittles, Michael Jai White, Jennifer Carpenter, Laurie Holden, Fred Melamed, Thomas Kretschmann, and Don Johnson.

Synopsis:

When two cops are suspended after a leaked video of their strong-arm tactics spreads in the media, they descend into the criminal underworld to get their due compensation – but find more than they bargained for.

S. Craig Zahler’s films burn like a bloody incense candle – slow, powerful and incredibly distinct. Like a contemporary Pinhead, the sights he’s shown us leave a mental scar: in Bone Tomahawk, cannibalistic cave-dwellers literally rip a man a half from the balls up; in Brawl in Cell Block 99, Vince Vaughn steps on a man’s head and drags it across the ground, turning his face into mush. The violence is extreme, but the genre-traversing road to get there is one of passionate craft.

  • HeyUGuys
If ‘Bone Tomahawk’ and ‘Brawl in Cell Block 99’ took your fancy, director Craig S. Zahler has a third film ‘Dragged Across Concrete’ on the horizon and there is a brand new trailer.

Whilst the trailer doesn’t offer any of the gruesomeness of his first two films, it still looks to have that same deadpan humour we have taken to heart from his other offerings.

This time around Zahler reteams with ‘Brawl in Cell Block 99’ lead Vince Vaughn to play one of the two detectives suspended after going in a little too heavy on suspects. He partners up with Mel Gibson. The film also stars Don Johnson, Jennifer Carpenter, Tory Kittles and Laurie Holden.

Trailer For Mel Gibson and Vince Vaughn's New Film Dragged Across Concrete

Lionsgate has released the first trailer for Mel Gibson and Vince Vaughn’s crime thriller Dragged Across Concrete.

I’ve been excited about seeing this film, not only because of the cast but because of the director Craig Zahler. He previously directed films such as Bone Tomahawk and Brawl in Cell Block 99 both of which are films I thought were great! I’ve also heard that Dragged Across Concrete is another awesome film from the filmmaker.

I will say, this isn’t really the best or most exciting trailer, but I’m still looking forward to seeing it based on the reasons I mentioned above.

The story for the film follows “two police detectives who find themselves suspended when a video of their strong-arm tactics is leaked to the media. With little money and no options, the embittered policemen descend into the criminal underworld and find more than they wanted waiting in the shadows.

‘Dragged Across Concrete’ Trailer: Mel Gibson and Vince Vaughn Team Up

  • Indiewire
Lionsgate has released the trailer for “Dragged Across Concrete,” which confirms S. Craig Zahler as one of the most notable genre filmmakers working today. Following closely on the heels of “Bone Tomahawk” and “Brawl in Cell Block 99” — whose premiere at the 2017 Venice Film Festival preceded this film’s by just a year — the new film stars Mel Gibson and Vince Vaughn as two old-school cops whose habit of roughing up suspects gets them suspended. After said suspension, the partners decide to see how the other half lives by making some money on the wrong side of the law; anyone who’s seen Zahler’s prior work can guess how well that works out for them.

In my Venice review of the film, I wrote that the writer-director “maintains a calm, steady hand over the increasingly brutal proceedings, which is a kind of trick — he puts you at ease when you should be on alert.

‘Dragged Across Concrete’ Trailer: Mel Gibson and Vince Vaughn Play Crooked Cops for ‘Bone Tomahawk’ Director
Director S. Craig Zahler revels in telling nasty, brutal stories. He burst on the scene with the ultra-violent western Bone Tomahawk and followed that up with Brawl in Cell Block 99, a deeply unpleasant, unabashedly gory prison movie two years later. Now he’s back with Dragged Across Concrete, a movie whose title may telegraph what the audience […]

Dragged Across Concrete Trailer Gets Brutal with Mel Gibson and Vince Vaughn

Dragged Across Concrete Trailer Gets Brutal with Mel Gibson and Vince Vaughn
A new trailer for Dragged Across Concrete is here. This is the latest from filmmaker S. Craig Zahler, who has been thrilling moviegoers who don't get squeamish at the sight of extreme violence since his ultra-violent directorial debut, the 2015 western Bone Tomahawk. Now he's back with an unlikely duo consisting of Mel Gibson and Vince Vaughn who play a couple of dirty cops hoping to make a big score to set themselves up for the future.

The trailer kicks off with a darkly comedic bit, but things quickly transition into a dark seriousness. It paints Mel Gibson as an aging cop who has lost touch a bit, while Vince Vaughn, his partner, is pondering his future, leading them to consider stepping on the wrong side of the law. While the footage doesn't do a great job of laying out the story at hand, it does make it clear that this

First Trailer for S. Craig Zahler’s ‘Dragged Across Concrete’ Starring Vince Vaughn and Mel Gibson

After crafting a pair of the most impressively-written B-movie genre blasts in recent years with Bone Tomahawk and Brawl in Cell Block 99, S. Craig Zahler returned last fall at Venice Film Festival to premiere his latest crime drama: Dragged Across Concrete. Starring Vince Vaughn and Mel Gibson as detectives who, when faced with a public outcry after police brutality, enter a criminal underworld. Ahead of a release next month, the first trailer and poster have now arrived.

Leonardo Goi said in his review, “Anyone transfixed by the hyper-stylized meathead triumph of blood and violence of Brawl in Cell 99 should be warned. Dragged Across Concrete, S. Craig Zahler’s third feature, is comparatively much tamer than his 2017 prison drama. But where the new entry lacks in bloodshed and bone-splintering violence, it still confirms Zahler’s penchant for complicated characters, and conjures up a bad cops action movie which, despite blips

‘Dragged Across Concrete’ Trailer: Mel Gibson & Vince Vaughn Are Morally Dubious Cops Trying To Get Paid

After penning the surprisingly well-received “Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich,” S. Craig Zahler returns with what could be his most controversial work to date. The evocatively titled “Dragged Across Concrete” sees the “Bone Tomahawk” and “Brawl in Cell Block 99” director take on the timely and contentious topic of police brutality, though early signs indicated that there could be less emphasis on the “brutality” part of this equation than his previous work might suggest.
