20th Century Fox has scored the screen rights to “Bone Tomahawk” writer/director S. Craig Zahler’s western novel “Wraiths Of The Broken Land” with plans for a film adaptation that will serve as a reunion of the team behind “The Martian”.
Set near the Mexican border at the turn of the previous century, a group of men assemble and storm across the badlands to find their captive sisters, doing anything they deem necessary to achieve their goal. Lives, ethics and sanity are imperiled during the wild, brutal struggle that ensues and nobody is safe.
Ridley Scott will direct, Drew Goddard will pen the script, while Michael Schaefer, Simon Kinberg and Aditya Sood will produce. Scott is currently directing “Alien: Covenant” for release in 2017.
