John Leguizamo (‘Ride Along,’ ‘Chef’), Lynn Collins (‘John Carter,’ ‘X-Men Origins: Wolverine’) and Jim Belushi (‘The Ghost Writer,’ ‘According to Jim’) are confirmed to be joining Patrick Wilson and Ian McShane in ‘The Man On Carrion Road.’
With Gonzalo Lopez-Gallego (‘Open Grave,’ ‘Apollo 18’) directing from a script by Nils Lyew’s script, ‘The Man On Carrion Road’ is the visceral story of a botched Mexican cartel deal in the back roads of a border town. The town’s new sheriff (played by Wilson) must team up with the retired lawman (McShane) he replaced to investigate the source of the deal in order to stop a mysterious cartel butcher (Leguizamo) and his systematic brutalization of the town’s residents. A gritty and modern thriller, The Man On Carrion Road collides head on with the pathos and hard realities that inhabit life along the border; it’s a story that explores the ambitions, difficulties and consequences that turn men into monsters and monsters into reality.
Principal photography kicks off April 14th, with William Green, Aaron Ginsburg and Andy Horwitz of Atlas Independent producing produce.
