Tom Jane, James Marsden And Billy Bob Thornton Fight ‘Red Machine’!

Back in October of 2010 we reported that Saw V director David Hackl had been lined up to direct Jack Reher’s spec script Red Machine.

We’re now finally hearing some more concrete news on the project. Per Variety, “Fully financed pic centers around two estranged brothers (Marsden, Jane) who reconcile on a camping trip with their girlfriends. Once in the remote wilderness, however, things go horribly awry when they are attacked and relentlessly stalked by a horrifying grizzly bear — the Red Machine. Thornton will play a legendary bear expert and hunter.

While I haven’t seen Saw V, and I’m not really the biggest fan of that franchise’s aesthetic, this movie sounds like it could actually be ridiculously fun! I’m kind of excited!

Below the jump I’ve included the original 2010 sales art so you can behold its awesome tagline. Sadly, I believe Bart the Bear is unavailable. Red Machine
