S. Craig Zahler is a novelist, screenwriter and movie director.
Zahler’s novels include Mean Business on North Ganson Street, A Congregation of Jackals, Wraiths of the Broken Land, and Hug Chickenpenny: The Panegyric of an Anomalous Child. I’ve read and enjoyed Mean Business on North Ganson Street. I look forward to diving in to his other novels.
At this point, Zahler is probably best known for his movies. Bone Tomahawk and Brawl in Cell Block 99 showed Zahler to be a promising film-maker not afraid to create genre films that are equal parts character study, action and horror. Zahler’s next film, Dragged Across Concrete, stars Mel Gibson and Vince Vaughn with support from Jennifer Carpenter, Don Johnson, Laurie Holden,Udo Kier and Michael Jai White. I can’t wait.
Jedidiah Ayres recently interviewed S. Craig Zahler and they talked novels, movies and more. Well done, Jedidiah!
