Duane Graves and Justin Meeks, who both co-directed the popular indie The Wild Man of the Navidad, are reteaming for Boneboys, which is now filming in Dallas Texas. Penned by The Texas Chainsaw Massacre‘s Kim Henkel, Boneboys is comedic horror inspired by Jonathan Swift’s “A Modest Proposal,” in which the author suggested, tongue firmly in cheek, that cannibalism might be a good notion. Henkel’s script looks at the descendants of a culture that adopted just that philosophy. ““They discovered that eating human flesh is highly addictive,” he said. “Eat too much and it turns you into a monster.” Chain Saw fans will enjoy a few cameos by Ed Neal, who was the hitchhiker in the original film, and John Dugan, who was the grandfather. Bill Johnson, Leatherface in 1986’s Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, pops up as Mr. Grimm, a baker who tries to lure the innocent into his shop.
