Lili Simmons, David Arquette, Sid Haig, Kathryn Morris and Evan Jonigkeit have joined the cast of writer-director S. Craig Zahler’s Bone Tomahawk. Kurt Russell, Patrick Wilson, Matthew Fox and Richard Jenkins star in the brutal tale of four men attempting to rescue captives from a band of cannibals who live on the edge of civilization. Simmons (True Detective) will play Samantha O’Dwyer, the de facto town doctor and dedicated wife Wilson’s character. Arquette (the Scream films) and Haig (The Devil’s Rejects) play a couple of filthy brigands whose actions set off a string of violent repercussions. Morris (Cold Case) will play the wife of Russell’s Sheriff Hunt, and Jonigkeit (Girls) will play a young deputy sheriff. Caliber Media’s Dallas Sonnier and Jack Heller are producing the film.
Kristina Lauren Anderson has been tapped to adapt the Warner Bros feature Invisibility from the supernatural romance YA novel by David Levithan and Andrea Creme. Penguin’s Philomel Books published the novel, a romance between a boy cursed with invisibility and the one girl who can see him, in May. Anderson wrote Catherine The Great, which circulated around town this summer, and her previous script Forever Jiaying was a Nicholls semifinalist and Zoetrope finalist. She also produced the 2010 feature Girlfriend, which premiered at Toronto and won the Independent Film Audience Award at the 2011 Gotham Award. Anderson is repped by Verve, the Schiff Company and Jackoway Tyerman.
