Lili Simmons (True Detective) and David Arquette (Scream) have joined the cast of the “ultraviolent” Western Bone Tomahawk. Kathryn Morris (Cold Case), Evan Jonigkeit (Girls), Sean Young (Blade Runner), and Sid Haig (The Devil’s Rejects) will also appear in this movie from novelist-turned-filmmaker S. Craig Zahler, alongside previously announced actors Kurt Russell, Patrick Wilson, Matthew Fox, and Richard Jenkins.

According to the official synopsis, Bone Tomahawk concerns four men who “attempt to rescue a group of captives from a band of cannibalistic troglodytes that live beyond the edge of civilization.” And if the combination of the words “Kurt,” “Russell,” “cannibalistic,” and “troglodytes” doesn’t get you excited, then we just don’t know what to say.

Simmons will play Samantha O’Dwyer, the female lead, de facto doctor of the town of Bright Hope, and the dedicated wife to Patrick Wilson’s Arthur O’Dwyer. Arquette and Haig play a couple of filthy brigands whose actions set off a string of violent repercussions. Morris will play the wife to Kurt Russell’s Sheriff Hunt and Jonigkeit will play a young deputy sheriff.
