Atlas Independent and Relativity International are teaming up to bring us the -helmed, visceral thriller The Man on Carrion Road. The movie is based on up-and-coming screenwriter Nils Lyew's script. Actor is attached to star in another of those gun-toting, gritty roles he likes so well (can we just cast him as Roland of Gilead already?) as a border town's new sheriff.
The story goes something like this: When a botched Mexican cartel deal goes down on the back roads of his town, the sheriff must team up with the retired lawman he replaced to discover the source of the deal and stop the remorseless cartel butcher as he brutalizes and murders the town's residents.
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."
This is another movie that is headed to Cannes, so expect to hear about this getting picked up fairly soon. Production starts the end of August in Medellin, Columbia. [[follow]] and we'll keep you updated with all the latest.
