Zahler To Direct “Bone Tomahawk”

Screenwriter S. Craig Zahler (“The Brigands of Rattleborge”) will make his feature directorial debut on the brutal, character-driven horror western “Bone Tomahawk” at Caliber Media Co.

The story follows a sheriff (Kurt Russell), a gunslinger, a befuddled oldster (Richard Jenkins) and a cowboy (Peter Sarsgaard) as they attempt to rescue a group of captives (including Jennifer Carpenter) from a band of cannibalistic troglodytes.

Zahler wrote the script. Dallas Sonnier and Jack Heller are producing and shooting aims to kick off in the Spring in New Mexico.
