In Bone Tomahawk, four men attempt to rescue a group of captives from a band of cannibalistic troglodytes that live beyond the edge of civilization.

Caliber Media partners Dallas Sonnier and Jack Heller will produce and arranged the majority of the financing through a deal with The Fyzz Facility’s Wayne Marc Godfrey, Robert Jones and David Gilbery, who will serve as Executive Producers.
