Billy Bob Thornton gives the lowdown on his Grizzly Bear survival horror film, ‘Red Machine’

Actor Billy Bob Thornton took to his official blog to describe just what we can expect from his new survival horror, Red Machine. The film is about a group of men being relentlessly hunted by a vicious Grizzly Bear, and sounds awesome! Please, allow Billy Bob Thornton to explain in his own words:

James Marsden (X-Men, Enchanted) and Thomas Jane (“Hung”, yes, and so good in The Mist) are a pair of estranged brothers who enter the wilderness. Marsden, fresh out of jail, is the ne’er-do-well who has come home to settle some unfinished business. Jane is the town sheriff who helps his fiancée track the local fauna. Their outing in the great white north takes off but goes horribly south when they are attacked, then relentlessly pursued by a monstrous and seriously territorial grizzly bear. This is clearly not Yogi Bear or Gentle Ben territory because this particular specimen of Ursus arctos horribilis goes by the nickname “Red Machine.”

Billy Bob plays Douglass, an Alaskan bear tracker whom James Marsden describes as much like Robert Shaw’s Quint character in Jaws. Douglass ain’t quite right in the head, but he knows that bears do more than you-know-what in the woods. The cast includes Adam Beach (Cowboys and Aliens), Scott Glenn (“You spook easily, Starling?”), Kelly Curran (“How I Met Your Mother”), and Michaela McManus (“The Vampire Diaries”). Piper Perabo (The Prestige) plays Thomas Jane’s fiancée, a wilderness-savvy photographer whose ability to survive the escalating danger may be hampered by the fact that she is deaf.

The actor also went into some detail about just what he would be doing in the film, and it is actually hilarious:

What Billy Bob Gets To Do
Ride a horse, hunt a bear, mysterious appear and disappear in the woods.

David Hackl (Saw V) directs.

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
