In my on-going quest to find out more about the film Bone Tomahawk, which should see Kathryn in a small role as the wife of a wild west Sheriff played by Kurt Russell (Stargate), I’ve been seeking out good sources of intel. As I always do so as to bring you the best and most accurate data.
Looking for information about Bone Tomahawk can bring up a lot of confusing stuff because the film has been in pre-production for over two years, with various casting announcements in the intervening period, and significant changes in the personnel. The news as KM UK reported at the time, because it included Kathryn, was how things were as the film finally went into production in October. The addition of Patrick Wilson (The Conjuring), Matthew Fox (Lost), Lili Simmons (Banshee), David Arquette (Scream), and Kathryn, amongst others, made headlines. Later I created a post rounding up most of what we know.
A couple of weeks ago I found a new podcast by Weird West Radio discussing the recent casting news for Bone Tomahawk. Clearly they are big fans of the western genre. Understandably the guys on the podcast, Johnny and Clint, were excited about the news of a new western and mentioned the inclusion of the actors such as Timothy Olyphant (Justified) and Peter Sarsgaard (Jarhead). Those were earlier casting announcements and they are no longer connected with the film.
Always happy to help out I sent a Tweet to Weird West Radio:
@weirdwestradio Re Bone Tomahawk. IMDb list accurate. Others you mentioned (Olyphant, Sarsgaard, Carpenter) no longer attached to the film. – Link
Today (23 Nov) saw the release of a new WWR podcast and Johnny updated their listeners about Bone Tomahawk and very kindly read out my Tweet. Sort of
I’ve created this post to clarify a couple of things said in the podcast as Twitter is too restrictive. The above covers most of it but I should add the following: I’m a he (understanable confusion from my Twitter details), based in the UK, and an “uber-fan” of the actress Kathryn Morris who has a small role in the film.
Thank you for the mention on WWR. I hope you get to talk to the producers of the film for a future podcast so we can all find out more about the project.
It’s been a weird week
