Surely there can’t be anything more manly than fighting a bear? It appears James Marsden, Thomas Jane and Billy Bob Thornton don’t think so, as they’ve signed up to do just that in Red Machine, from Saw V director David Hackl.
According to Variety, the film is about two estranged brothers (Marsden and Jane) who make amends in the remote wilderness with their respective girlfriends. However, their freshly repaired bond is threatened when they’re attacked and stalked by a grizzly bear nicknamed the Red Machine. Thornton will star as a “legendary bear expert and hunter” who presumably helps the boys out of their predicament (or gets killed to highlight what a badass bear this is).
There seems to be a bit of a man vs. nature theme in Hollywood at the moment, with a couple of shark attack pics doing the rounds, Liam Neeson against wolves in the upcoming The Grey and now nasty bears!
