Casting begins for horror western.

Kurt Russell (‘Death Proof), Richard Jenkins (‘The Cabin in the Woods’), Peter Sarsgaard (‘Green Lantern’) and Jennifer Carpenter (‘Dexter’) have been cast in screenwriter S. Craig Zahler’s feature directorial debut ‘Bone Tomahawk.’

Acccorinding to Variety the brutally violent, character-driven western horror follows “a sheriff (Russell), a gunslinger, a befuddled oldster (Jenkins) and a cowboy (Sarsgaard) as they attempt to rescue a group of captives (including Carpenter) from a band of cannibalistic troglodytes.”

Caliber Media partners Dallas Sonnier and Jack Heller are producing and have their eyes on a spring start in New Mexico.
