'Bone Tomahawk' grows its ensemble cast
Kurt Russell and Richard Jenkins, attached since the project's inception in 2013, will be joined by Patrick Wilson and Matthew Fox, it was announced last week. Now Lili Simmons and David Arquette have also joined the cast.
"Bone Tomahawk," to be directed by S. Craig Zahler, focuses on an outlaw and his band of cave-dwelling cannibals, who have captured several residents of the peaceful village of Bright Hope. A farmer, a sheriff, his deputy and a sharp shooter team up to come to the villagers' rescue.
The movie's ensemble cast has just added Lili Simmons, seen on "True Detective," and David Arquette, known for his role in the "Scream" movies. The two actors join Patrick Wilson, who recently starred in "The Conjuring" and will soon return in "Stretch," and Matthew Fox of "Lost."
Also on the billing are action movie veterans Kurt Russell ("Death Proof") and Richard Jenkins ("White House Down").
Screenwriter and cinematographer S. Craig Zahler will make his directorial debut with this western, which is said to be particularly violent. No release dates have been announced.
