Writer/director S. Craig Zahler has delivered back to back hits with Brawl in Cell Block 99 and Bone Tomahawk. His latest, Dragged Across Concrete, appears to be in the same vein and is currently making its way through the festival scene. His next project; however, may be his most anticipated yet.
Collider reports that Amazon Studios is producing Zahler’s 2006 script, titled The Brigands of Rattlecreek, with South Korean genre legend, Park Chan-wook (Oldboy, Lady Vengeance, Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance) in the director’s chair. Pretty cool, right? It gets better.
The Brigands of Rattlecreek is described by Collider reporter, Jeff Sneider, as an “ultraviolent western”–so fans of the shocking 2015 western, Bone Tomahawk, should be excited. And in keeping with Zahler’s unbelievable ability to score A-list talent in his projects, academy award winner, Matthew Mcconaughey, is reportedly in discussions to star in the upcoming genre collaboration.
Not much more is known for now, but we’ll keep you posted as more information becomes available. I’m pumped. Check out the plot synopsis, below.
A sheriff and a doctor seek revenge against a group of bandits who use the cover of a torrential thunderstorm to rob and terrorize the occupants of a small town.
