Today marks the very first day of my being aware of a film called Bone Tomahawk. It has apparently been in the works for a while now, but somehow I managed to not know that someday there might be a movie that would not only have the greatest title ever, but would also star Kurt Russell, Timothy Olyphant, Jennifer Carpenter, and Peter Sarsgaard. Plus, this synopsis:
"Bone Tomahawk" follows an outlaw who unknowingly leads a band of cannibalistic Troglodytes into the peaceful western town of Bright Hope. When the monsters kidnap several settlers, including a rancher’s wife, a small rescue party consisting of the injured rancher, the sheriff, his aging deputy and a strong-willed gunslinger, journey into hell to try and rescue them. They soon find themselves in dark unknown territories where savage inbreeds armed with the ultimate weapon leave no hope of survival.
Cannibals, gunslingers, ultimate weaons, and inbreeding. What's not to like? Even if this starred Richard Grieco, it'd be a must see.
The Wrap reports that Magnolia has acquired the American rights to the film, which doesn't actually start filming until August. Thus will begin perhaps the greatest film to ever have the word "Tomahawk" in the title. This deal ensures we'll be able to see it in some shape or form when the time comes. That's good because stuff this awesome is usually only for rich people.
