Patrick Wilson attends "Morning Glory" premiereWhen we first heard about The Man on Carrion Road, Timothy Olyphant (Justified) was attached to star. As often happens in the world of film, this has now changed.

It turns out that Patrick Wilson (Insidious, The Conjuring, Watchmen) is now on board.

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 he replaced to investigate the source of the deal in order to stop a mysterious cartel butcher 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.

Check out the press release below:

Atlas Independent, the affiliate company of Charles Roven’s Atlas Entertainment, and Relativity International, the newly formed international division of Relativity Media—announced today Golden Globe® and Emmy nominee®, Patrick Wilson (Young Adult, Little Children, Angels in America), will star in THE MAN ON CARRION ROAD.
